5IO HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

JONATHAN ATWATEK 

Was a merchant of New Haven. In 1702, Feb. 12, he 
bought of Henry Cook of Wallingford, one hundred and 
eighteen acres of land, near the Honey Pat Brook in the 
western part of Wallingford, now Cheshire. The same 
farm has been in the family name ever since, and has 
come down as follows : first to Jonathan Atwater Jr. ; 
second to his son Abraham Atwater ; third- to Samuel 
Atwater, and fourth to Flamen Atwater; and then 
recently to the heirs of Flamen, who had lived to the 
age of 70 or more years, and was born on the place. 
This branch of the Atwater family emanates from a 
different branch than others of the same name in Chesh- 
ire and Wallingford, although of the same original stock. 

CAPT. CALEB ATWATER, 

Son of Joshua and Sarah (Yale) Atwater, and grandson 
of John Atwater, the first of the name who permanently 
settled in the village of Wallingford, was born Sept. 5, 
1 74 1. At suitable age after the decease of his father, 
he articled himself as an apprentice to learn the art, 
trade and mystery of shoe and harness making and tan- 
ning leather. At the termination of his apprenticeship, 
he commenced business for himself, adopting as his 
motto, Be diligent, be honest, and owe no man. In 
the different branches of his business he was successful, 
and as soon as his means would permit' he opened a 
store of goods. At this time his business rapidly in- 
creased, and for many years he was extensively and suc- 
cessfully engaged as a merchant. He was endowed with 
extraordinary good judgment and business talent. He 
seldom if ever failed of success in any of his numerous 
enterprises.

CALEB ATWATER 

Son of Joshua, and grandson of Capt. Caleb Atwater, 
was born July 11,1804; removed to Atwater, Ohio, in 
1823, to take charge and dispose of Western Reserve 
Lands, and to engage in merchandize. That country at 
that date was quite new. For over forty years he resi- 
ded in the town of Atwater and city of Cleveland, an 
interested observer of the growth and advance of the 
Western Reserve and entire state of Ohio to its present 
greatness. In 1865 he removed from Cleveland to his 
native town, Wallingford, the oldest remaining member 
of his father's family. 

DEACON JOHN ATWATER 

Son of Joshua Atwater, born July 19, 1815, now resides 
at his father's old homestead, which was the home of his 
grandfather and great grandfather, it being the same 
farm originally owned and occupied by his great great 
grandfather John Atwater, who was son of David Atwa- 
ter of New Haven, and who was one of the original 
Planters of New Haven, A. D. 1637. 

HON. EDGAR ATWATER 

Son of Joshua and Elizabeth Atwater, and grandson of 
Caleb Atwater, was a young man of more than ordinary 
promise and ability. As a public speaker he was en- 
dowed with an uncommon gift. In 1841 he was elected 
a Senator from the sixth Senatorial district to the 
Connecticut Legislature, and was a popular and a very 
influential member of that body. He died in 1850, at 
the age of 38 years, lamented by all who knew him. 

JOHN BAULCOT 

Of Farmington, Eng., came into Wallingford about the 
beginning of the last century, and settled in the eastern 
section of the town on an old road that formerly ran 



south from the of the late Col. Russ 

barn. This which lived a numb

STEPHEN BEACH 



Was born in Wallingford, March 15, 1790. Without the 
advantages of a collegiate education, but with a remark- 
able love of learning, and strong intellectual powers, he 
became a good scholar and an excellent preacher. He 
was admitted to Deacon's Orders in St. Michael's Church, 
R. L, by Bishop Griswold, on the twentieth of October, 
1815. Immediately after his ordination he removed to 
the northern part of Vermont, where, for several years, 
he officiated in the three parishes of St. Albans, Fairfield 
and Sheldon. He was the only clergyman of the Epis- 
copal church of that day, north of Vergennes. He was 
admitted to Priest's orders by Bishop Griswold, in Hold- 
erness, N. H., August 20, 181 7. In 1822 he removed 
from Vermont to take charge of the parish at Salisbury 
in the state of Connecticut. Here also he was known, 
as he had been in Vermont, as a successful founder of 
churches, and his name is gratefully remembered through- 
out that part of the State. In 1833 he removed from 
Salisbury to Essex in the same State, taking charge of 
that parish in connection with St. Stephen's Church, East 
Haddam. Under his zealous ministry, each of these 
parishes soon grew to require and be able to support 
the entire service of a minister; and in 1836 Mr. Beach 
resigned the parish at Essex and became pastor at East 
Haddam. His ministry in this place, abundantly blessed, 
was continued for two years only, when he died at the 
age of forty-seven, on the fourteenth day of January, 1838. 

In 1 8 14 he was married to a daughter of Amos 
Billings of Guilford, Vermont. Two of his sons are 
highly respectable clergymen of the Episcopal church ; 
one, Amos Billings, rector of Christ church, Binghamp- 



ton, N. V., the other, Alfred Billings i J). D. ), rector 

of St . 's chun h, \ T > ■. fork city. 

Altfeo i ed in the Providence of God to occupy 

positions in the church to which he belonged rem< 
and comparative!) but little known, yet it may b< 
with truth, that few of its ministers have been m> 
useful, or have in the same period of time done more in 
this country for the extension of that church, and its 
permanent establishment in destitute places, than did 
Mr. Beach. 

\s a preacher, he was remarkably clear, earnest, 
plain and instructive. He excelled in extemporaneous 
preaching. Taking a strong hold of what he regarded 
as truth or duty, his conduct was always consistent with 
his profession.- and convictions. At the same time, he 
was singularly humble and charitable, and was therefore 
reatly respected and beloved by all who knew him, and 
not less by these who were not, than by those who wet 
of his own church and persuasion. 

MOSES YALE BEACH. 

The life of Moses Y. Beach, well known as the late 

proprietor of the New York Sun, the pioneer of the 

penny press, while it presents no remark iriety of 

changes or incidents, is attractive in tracing the steps 

>f a determined man. 

His great grandfather and grandfather, both b< 
the name of Moses Beach, each lived in succession on 
the same farm, to good old age, ranking among the 
respectable men of the settlement ; and when each 
in turn had answered the call of nature, their p 
sessions passed to Moses Sperry Beach, who married 
Lucretia Vale, a daughter of Captain Elihu and Lucre- 
tia (Stanley) Vale, a - idant of Thomas Yale, who 



5 l6 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

settled in Wallingford in 1670. Of this couple, Moses 
Yale Beach was an only son. When at the age of four 
months Mr. Beach was deprived of his mother by the 
hand of death ; and as his father's business called him 
much from home, he was confided to the care of his 
step-mother. As soon as his age would permit he was 
taught to do " chores," and at the age of ten years he 
took charge of considerable of the out-door work on the 
farm, besides going a long distance to school. From 
four o'clock in the morning until eleven o'clock at night 
he was generally up and doing, and yet found leisure to 
exercise his mechanical ingenuity in the manufacture of 
playthings for himself and others. 

At a suitable age he was, at his own solicitation, bound 
an apprentice to Mr. Daniel Dewey, a cabinet maker at 
Hartford. His industry soon excited the attention of 
his master, who was a close man, but who finally made 
a contract by which young Beach was allowed two cents 
an hour for extra work. Mr. Beach afterwards said, 
that he never felt happier at any time during his life, at 
success -in any thing, than he did on the occasion of 
closing that contract. Early and late he worked, and 
the pennies began to accumulate. Finally he made a 
bargain for his time after he should arrive at the age 
of eighteen years*, for which he was to pay the sum of 
$400. This arrangement gave him new life, and when 
the time had come round he had saved between one 
and two hundred dollars more than enough to pay for 
his freedom, with which he cofnmenced life. 

He went to Northampton and worked a short time as 
a journeyman. After a while he formed a copartnership 
with a young man by the name of Loveiand. Their 
work was much celebrated ; in testimony of which they 



BIOGRAPH 517 

received the first premium of the Franklin Institute. 
While thus employed under a fair sky, he man 
Nanc} Da) of West Springfield, Maj . 

In ■ • moved to New York, whet, he shortly 

after bought the interest o\ Mr. Wisner in th 

on a credit of $5,200. In the course of the 
following year, he bargained with Benjamin II I 'as', his 
partner, for the remaining half, for the sum of $19,500. 
The first six months after he became thecntir r of 

the paper it did not pro profitable as hi expect- 

ed, and he was ready to sell it out, and offered it and 
all the property he then po ed, if any one would take 

it oft" his hands and pay his obligations to Mr. Day ; but 
not • • ding in effecting a sale, he went to work with 

■wed ardor, and before two years had passed, the last 
dollar was paid off and he was once more in the 
ascendant. 

From 1838 his course was steadily upward. His 
ability and enterprise in the management of his busi- 
ness e.xcited the envy of some : but notwithstanding 
this, there are very few, if any, who knew him personally, 
who did not value him as a friend. Notwithstanding 
his many and severe labors, together with his failing 
th in middle life, he lived to the age of sixty-nine 
years, and died pof of the la estate of any 

native of Wallingford who had died in the town.

520 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

STEPHEN ROWE BRADLEY, LL.D. 

Was born in Wallingford, Cheshire Parish, Oct. 20, 1754, 
and graduated at Yale in 1775. He was the aid of Gen. 
Wooster when that officer was slain. He settled in 
Vermont, and became one of the most popular men in 
that State. In 1791 he was elected to the Senate of the 
United States, and continued a member of that body for 
sixteen years. He died at Walpole, New Hampshire, 
Dec. 16, 1830, aged 75 years. 

JOHN BROCKETT 

Was one of the earliest settlers in Wallingford ; was 
there with his friend John Moss in 1668, and possibly 
before, making preparations for the settlement of a vil- 
lage there, and was selected by the New Haven committee 
to act as one of the sub-committee to manage the affairs 
of the new settlement until such time as it should become 
strong enough to manage its own affairs. The lot which 
was assigned him and on which he located himself, was 
at the south end of the village, a short distance below the 
present residence of Constant Webb, and extending over 
to Wharton's brook, embracing a portion of the land of 
Giles Hall and the house of the late Edward L. Hall. 
He died March 12, 1689, aged 80 years. His eldest son 
John was born in England, and settled near Muddy 
River in North Haven, as a Physician. He died Nov., 
1720, and was the progenitor of most of the Brockett 
families in that locality. 

JAMES CARRINGTON, ESQ. 

Was born in Wallingford and was during his whole 
life one of the most prominent of her citizens. He 
was the first post-master ever appointed for Wallingford, 
having the appointment in 1798, and continued in 



BI0GRAPH1 52 1 

the discharge of its duties until the close of his life. In 

person he was a large, well-built man, of commanding 
appearance and address. For many years he conducted 
the singing in the old C< rational meeting-house, 

until it was taken down in 1824, giving great satisfaction 

as a leader. He was superintendent of the gun facl 
for the late Eli Whitney, Esq., at Whitneyville, and 
such was the confidence of Mr. Whitney in his ability, 
that he gave him the entire charge of the business 
many years. His death was lamented by a large circle 
of friends and neighbors. 

LIVER1US CAKK1NGTON, ESQ. 

Studied medicine with Dr. Billious Kirtland of Wall 
ford, but never practised his profession. He entered 
into the mercantile business in early life as a partner 
with the late George B. Kirtland, and continued with 
him through life. He was remarkable for his fund of 
liveliness. He had a peculiar way of pleasing his patrons 
and friends, especially the young ; and his many noble 
qualities will long live in their memories. The firm of 
Carrington and Kirtland, at the decease of Mr. C, was 
one of the oldest, if not the oldest, in New Haven county. 

NIEL CLARK 

Married El h, daughter of James Miles of Walling- 

ford. She died April 19, 1755. He was a sea captain, 
and engaged largely in the shipping business. Being 
successful, he built at the foot of town hill, a house 
which was then the largest in the township 40 feet 

square on the front, and three stories high. It was after- 
ward occupied by Nathaniel Hitchcock, and finally sold 
to Joel Rice, who caused it to be tak> n down. He died 
Aug. 17, 1774, aged 



522 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

COL. THADDEUS COOK 

Son of Samuel, the son of Samuel, was born in that 
part of the town now embraced in the township of 
Cheshire. On the breaking out of the war of the Revo- 
lution he entered into the service of his country ; was 
made Colonel of his regiment, and was under the com- 
mand of Gen. Gates during the memorable battle at Sara- 
toga in 1777, and greatly distinguished himself as a 
brave and skillful officer. He died in Wallingford, Feb. 
28, 1800, aged 72 years. 

SAMUEL COOK 

Son of Col. Thaddeus, was born in Wallingford, and 
was eminently qualified for a public man. Although pos- 
sessed of a large real estate, he was ever ready to serve 
the public in almost any position to which he might be 
called. He was often a member of the General Assembly, 
and a selectman of the town. He was noted for his nat- 
ural gift in controlling those brought under his special 
authority. One look from him at one naturally indolent, 
was sufficient to arouse in him spirited action. A per- 
son once said to me, that he always loved and feared the 
presence of old Esq. Cook. He was active in the es- 
tablishment of the Union Academy, which flourished for 
some years after' its charter was granted, and was an 
honor to the town. As a farmer he had few if any 
superiors in his town or State. He died Sept. 27, 1824, 
aged 66 years. 

CAPT. JOEL COOK 

Born in Wallingford in 1760. At the age of 16 he en- 
tered the army of the Revolution with his father, Col. 
Isaac Cook of Wallingford, and served to the end. In 
r8i 1 he was at the battle of Tippecanoe. In 1813 he 



BI0GRAPH1 523 

resided in New Haven, and in [849 he removed from 
ikers to Deer Park, Long island, where he died on 
the [8th day ol Dec., li ed 92 years. It was this 

man who built the small stucco house standing on the 
east side of East street in the city of New Haven. 

REV. [IN DOOLITTLE. 

In the year 171 X, Rev. Benjamin Doolittle, of Wall- 
ingford, preached in Northfield, Mass. ; the people 
desired him to settle, and promised him £6$ ;is annua] 
salary, and quite a liberal amount of money and land as 
"settlement." Mr. Doolittle continued there until Jan- 
uary 9, 1748, when he died, in the fifty-fifth year of his 
age, and the thirtieth of his ministry. On the North- 
field records, one of their highways is laid out, "from 
Pochaug meadow to a little brook where Mr. Doolittle's 
horse died." The following is the epitaph on his tomb- 
stone : 

"Blessed with good intellectual parts, 
Well skilled in two important arts, 
Nob ) he tilled the double station 
Both of a preacher and physician. 
To cure m ns, 

He took unwearied care and pains ; 

■ to make his patient whole 
Throughout, in body and in soul. 
He loved his God, loved to do good, 
To all his friends vast kindness showed, 
Nor could his enemies exclaim 
And not kind to them.

Among the first he'll mount die ikies." 



524 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

LIEUT. ABRAHAM DOOLITTLE 

Was an inn-keeper during the French war. His house 
was the most noted tavern on the main road between 
Boston and New York. Lord Loudon, while on his way 
to Canada, put up at Doolittle's house with his coach 
and four splendid horses. The landlord was much in 
the habit of using large words out of their appropriate 
place and meaning. On this occasion he felt a special 
call for them. In the morning he carefully looked at 
the fine blooded team in presence of his titled guest 
and on each of the horses employed every superlative of 
a considerable character until he came to the fourth ani- 
mal. "What do you think of that one?" asked his 
lordship. " It is a precarious good horse," replied the 
landlord. The word precarious stuck to Mr. Doolittle 
as long as he lived. The house was removed from its 
old site, and is now the building on the south corner, 
opposite the Congregational church. It was placed 
where it "now stands by Eben Smith, who occupied it 
as a hotel for several years.

DANIEL HART 

Was born in Wallingford, and removed to Goshen in 
early life. He owned and occupied when living in 
Wallingford the house now occupied by the heirs of 
Lyman Hall, and known as the Aaron Yale place. He 
was a man of worth, and much respected.. 

REV. LUTHER HART 

Was his son, and was born at Goshen, July 27, 1783. 
His mother was a woman of superior mind. She came 
from a family on Long Island. In childhood he was 
distinguished for his great fondness for books and love 
of music. In his sixteenth year he became converted 
and united with the church at Torrington, where the 
family then resided. He felt a desire then to enter the 
ministry. The expense however was an effectual barrier 
to his desires, and he learned the trade of a house car- 
penter of his father. In the meantime he became 
acquainted with the rudiments of an English education, 
and acquired an intimate acquaintance of men and 
things, of human nature as seen in the affairs of common 
life, of which clergymen as a class are lamentably defi- 
cient. His trade he never forgot through life, and during 
his preparatory studies continued to exercise his skill as 
a worker on wood for profit, and at a later period for 
exercise and recreation. In the latter part of the year 
1802, or early in 1803, ne commenced his preparatory 
course of studies under the direction of his pastor, the 
Rev. Alexander Gillette. In September, 1803, he entered 
Yale college.. He at once took high rank, and at his 
graduation in 1807, received one of the highest honors 
of the institution. After a year devoted to teaching, he 
commenced his theological studies under the Rev Dr. 
Porter of Washington, Conn., and finished them at An-

through the influence of Dr. Bellamy, who was a native 
of the same town and a few years his senior. He died 
Nov. 10, 1760, the same day with his wife, in the " Great 
Sickness." They were buried in one grave, and two of 
his children and a young man living in his house died a 
few days later. Soon after these deaths, and while others 
were sick in the house, a Deacon Strong, near by, raised 
a flock of eleven quails, whicTTfiew over the house and 
dropped in the garden. Immediately after, three of them 
rose and flew into the bushes, but the other eight were 
found dead, and in an hour afterwards putrified, became 
offensive and were buried. As a physician and as a 
man Dr. Hull ever sustained a high character, in the 
place of his adoption.

GEORGE B. KIRTLAND, ESQ. 

During his whole life was an example worthy of 
imitation. He was universally regarded as an hon- 
est, upright and intelligent merchant and business 
man. He made it a principle never to recommend 
an article beyond what it would bear. He died in 
1869, having lived out the full number of years 
allotted to man, greatly lamented by the whole com- 
munity, and especially by the Episcopal church, of 
which he was a consistent and worthy member. He was 
the last male member of the once highly respectable 
Kirtland family in Wallingford. 

JARED POTTER KIRTLAND, M.D., LL.D. 

A son of Turhancl and Mary Kirtland, and grandson of 
Dr. Jared Potter, a distinguished physician of Walling- 
ford. He was born Nov. 10, 1793, in the town of 
Wallingford. He received his classical education 
chiefly in Cheshire and Wallingford academies, and 
was for a time a pupil of Rev. Dr. Tillotson Bronson, 
the then Principal of the Cheshire Episcopal Academy. 
In 1 8 10 he commenced the study of medicine, and 
became a private pupil of Drs. Eli Ives and Nathan 
Smith, of New Haven, until 18 12, when he entered 
the first class in the Medical Department of Yale Col- 
lege, and was the first who signed the matriculation 
book in the charge of Prof. Jonathan Knight. At the 
close of the medical term, he with others formed a class 
for the study of botany and mineralogy, which, together 
with their medical studies, was pursued under Prof. Eli 
Ives and Benjamin Silliman. In 18 14 he entered the 
Medical Department of the University of Pennsylvania, 
and soon after passed an examination for a medical 
degree before the medical faculty of Yale College. The

and direct a large farm, on which all the best- grains and 
grapes, and the best breeds of cattle, sheep, hogs, &c, 
have been tried and compared, comparative values of 
manures tested, and their components analyzed. 

In 1827 he was elected a representative to the Legis- 
lature of Ohio, and re-elected several times ; was chair- 
man of the committee on the Penitentiary in the House. 
In 1835 he was elected Professor of the Theory and 
Practice of Medicine in the Medical College of Ohio. 
In 1 841, having resigned his position in the Medical 
College of Ohio, he became Professor of the Theory and 
Practice of Medicine in the WUloughby Medical School ; 
and afterwards, when the medical department of the 
Western Reserve College was established at Cleveland, 
he accepted a similar position in that college, which his 
health compelled him to resign in 1864. He was at one 
time President of the Ohio State Medical Society; and 
when in attendance at public gatherings has universally 
been called upon to assume the duties of the chair. In 
1 86 1 he received the degree of LL.D. from Williams Col- 
lege. Genial in spirit, full of intelligent conversational 
power, possessing the retiring manner and dignity of a 
well-bred gentleman of the old school, he wins the 
hearts of the old and young ; while the intelligent and all 
who seek knowledge, rejoice in obtaining an hour in his 
society. He is now over 76 years old. 

JARED LEWIS, ESQ. 

Was born in Wallingford, and was for several years a

succeeded on the 12th day of May, 1670, at Hartford. 
He was evidently the le man of the new settlement,

and was the pioneer of the settlers, being on the ground 
certainly as early as 1667. His house lot was situated 
at the extreme south end of the village, adjoining that of 
his friend (John Brockett) who was associated- with him 
in promoting the interest and advancement of the settle- 
ment. He died A. D. 1707, aged 103. 

ELISHA M. POMEROY, ESQ. 

Came into Wallingford a tinner by trade, and married 
Lydia Mattoon. About the year 1820 he invented his 
justly celebrated Razor Strop, which soon became noted in 
every part of the United States. In this enterprise he 
was prosperous beyond his most sanguine expectations. 
He was a man of enterprise and good business talents, 
and of easy address and gentlemanly deportment. After 
his retirement from business he was chosen Judge of 
the Probate Court, and a Justice of the Peace. In 
the discharge of the duties of these offices, he was 
eminently well qualified, and his decisions compare 
favorably with those of any of his predecessors. He 
reared a large and highly respectable family of children, 
and died at the advanced age of 78 years, in Wallingford, 
the place of his adoption. His eldest son, George V. 
Pomeroy, is a merchant in New York city. The late 
Jerome B. Pomeroy M. D. is also a son of the Judge. 

JARED POTTER, M. D. 

Was born in East Haven, Conn., Sept. 25, 1742. His 
classical studies were commenced under the Rev. Phile- 
mon Robbins of Branford. He entered Yale college in 
1756, and was graduated in 1760. His medical studies 
were begun under Dr. Harpins of Milford, and afterward 
pursued under the Rev. Jared Elliot of Killingworth. 
He commenced practice in East Haven in 1763, but 
soon removed to New Haven, where he established a fa-

Wallingford, where he went into ; al practice 
and continued with the exception of the time spent in

went with them to Canada, and was present when the 
British port of St. John's was captured in September, 
1775, by General Montgomery. From there he renv 
with the army to Montreal, where he was placed in 
charge of a hospital, and remained until our fo

was an uncommonly diligent student, not merel) 
while acquirin • rudiments of his ; ■ . but to 

the end of his life. For many years he kept a medical 
school, in which several of the most eminent physicians 



536 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

of Connecticut were educated ; and it is worthy of 
remark that the late Dr. Samuel Hopkins of Hartford, 
who was considered the most able practitioner of his 
county if not in the State, was his pupil. Dr. Potter 
imbibed much of the spirit of Elliot for philosophical 
investigations, and took pains to become well acquainted 
with the practice and opinion of all the most celebrated 
writers, ancient and modern, upon nearly every disease. 
His reading was consequently very extensive. He 
was in the habit of purchasing annually all of the new 
medical works which appeared ; and was also well read in 
the reviews and other periodical literature of the day. 
As a physician he was a superior judge of symptoms, 
and was a very energetic and successful practitioner in 
acute diseases ; but it is said that he was very skeptical 
of the power of medicine in most chronic complaints, 
and for that reason, his practice in such cases was rather 
inefficient and sometimes almost inert. Dr. Potter was 
well known as having had a peculiar fondness for discuss- 
ing questions of speculative theology and the politics 
of the day ; and when conversing on these subjects his 
strict command of his temper and an uncommon urban- 
ity of manner, joined to a large share of wit and humor, 
usually gave him a decided advantage over most of his 
opponents. Like his preceptor Elliot, his practice and 
consultations were very extensive, and like him too for 
many years he was probably the most distinguished and 
influential physician in the State. He was one of the 
founders, and a Vice President of the State Medical 
Society. It is said that he was always able to recollect 
the name and face of any person who had once been 
introduced to him, and the circumstances of their meet- 
ing. His great colloquial powers, and the frankness and

SAMUEL GEORGE SIMPSON 

Son of Robert alias Samuel George, and Mary Simpson, 
was born in New Haven in 17 — . Samuel G. sen., came 
to America a lieutenant in the British army, about the 
year 1767, on a mission from the King of England to 
persuade the people of the colonies to receive the Stamp 
Act and other measures of the English government, 
which were then looked upon as odious and burdensome 
by the people. Mr. Simpson was a relation of the King 
by his marriage into a German family, Mr. Simpson 
himself being a German, and of a highly respectable 
and wealthy family. After taking up his residence in 
New Haven under the assumed name of Robert, he 
married Mary Johnson, daughter of a reputable family. 
Of this marriage Samuel George was an only child. 
After the decease of Mr. Simpson in 1776, his widow 
married Josiah Merriam of Wallingford, in the parish of 
Meriden, and removed to that place, taking her little son 
along with her, who, when about twenty years of age, 
married Mary, daughter of John and Eunice Yale of 
Meriden. She died April 2, 1799. After a suitable 
lapse of time he married Malinda, daughter of John and 
Lois Hall of Wallingford. He purchased and settled on 
the Dr. Russel or Henry place, situated on the old 
Tank-hood road, a short distance east of the residence of 
Mr. Hall. He disposed of this place and removed to 
Ohio, but after a residence of a few years he returned

CAPT. WILLIAM TODD 

Was born in North Haven and came to Wallingford a 
young man. He became acquainted with Miss Harriet 
Johnson, and in due time married her. He was a house 
joiner and carpenter, and as a builder was deservedly 
popular. Being possessed naturally of a good constitu- 
tion, he was enabled to continue the business of his trade 
until near the close of his life, which occurred in 1869, 
at the advanced age of 83 years. After the death of his 
first wife, he was married twice ; first, to the widow of 
Capt. Joel Rice, and secondly, to the widow Merrit Tuttle. 
He had a large family of children, most of whom are living. 

JOHN TYLER 

Was a native of Wallingford, and was graduated at Yale 
College in 1765. He was educated a Congregationalist, 
but having embraced the doctrines of the Church of 
England, prepared for Holy Orders under the care of Dr. 
Johnson of Stratford. In 1768 he went to England to 
receive ordination, with a view to becoming Rector of 
Christ Church, in Chelsea, Norwich, Conn. ; and having 
accomplished this object he returned the next year and 
entered on the duties of his office. For three years 
during the Revolution, owing to the popular excitement 
which prevailed against Episcopacy in New England, (it 
being regarded almost synonymous with Toryism), Mr. 
Tyler's church was closed; and from April 1776 to April 
1779 not an entry was made in its records. He how- 
ever, during this time held divine service in his own 
house, and was never molested in the performance of it. 
At one time he was afraid to drink the water of his own 
well ; and yet he was regarded as a man of great benevo- 
lence and liberality. As an evidence of the kindly

this amicable arrangement continued for three months. 
Mr. Tyler died Jan. 20, 1823, aged 81 years. He pub- 
lished a sermon preached at the opening of Irinity 
church in Pomfret, 1771 ; and a sermon preached at r>

Sigourney writes thus concerning him: "Me was an 
interesting preacher ; his voice sweet and solemn, and his 
eloquence persuasive. The benevolence of his heart was 
manifest in daily acts of courtesy and charity to those 
around him. He studied medicine in order to be: 
the poor, and to find out remedies for some of tho 
culiar diseases to which no common specifics seemed to 
apply. During the latter years of his life he was so 
infirm as to need assistance in his clerical duties."

but failing to obtain a commission in the regular army, 
he returned to Germany after marrying a lady of Mobile. 
In 1854 he again came to America and purchased a farm 
in Wallingford. At the commencement of the civil 
war he raised a regiment, the 29th New York Vol- 
unteers, which he commanded at the first battle of Bull 
Run, forming part of the reserve under Col. Miles. On 
Oct. 12, 1861, he was commissioned brigadier-general of 
volunteers, and appointed to the command of the 2d 
brigade of Blenker's division. This division was attached 
in May, 1862, to the Mountain department under Gen. 
Fremont. When Sigel assumed command of the corps 
after the organization of the army of Virginia, General 
Steinwehr was promoted to the command of the 2d

chased the town of Stamford. He also with others 
purchased Hempsted on Long Island, but in consequence 
of difficulties with the Dutch government, removedjto 
Fairfield, and died Oct., 1650, leaving a widow Esther

and erected the present buildings on the ground where 
he was born ; and during the remainder of his life he de-

walks and highly improving his own grounds. He was 
a man of sterling worth, very methodical in habit, of 
thorough business qualities and a finely balanced mind. 
During his residence in Wallingford, he gave largely to 
the Episcopal church, and gave more to erect the presenl

after his death. Mr. Whittelsey was frequently offered 
positions of trust in private and public, but he refused 
them, for he wished to be quiet after a busy life. Mr. 
Whittelsey was the father of ten children, only two re- 
maining at the time of his death ; six died between the 
ages of nineteen and twenty-seven. He married Oct. 
22, 1 8 14, Lydia G. Archer of New York city, who lived

CAPT. THOMAS YALE 

Son of Thomas the emigrant, was one of the original 
settlers or planters of Wallingford, and was one of the 
most active and efficient among them. As selectman or 
townsman, he was ever ready to work for the interest 
of the village. He was frequently elected to represent 
the people in the General Court, and was greatly dis- 
tinguished for his devotion to the interests of his constit- 
uents, whom he ably represented for a number of 
successive years. He married Rebecca Gibbons, 
daughter of William, of New Haven. She died Dec. 
11, 1667. After her decease, he married Sarah, daugh- 
ter of John Nash, of New Haven. She died May 24, 
1716 ; and he then married Mary Beach, of Wallingford, 
July 31, 1 716. He had by the two last no children. He 
was chosen one of the number to assist in the formation 
or gathering of a church in the place, after the Congre- 
gational order ; and was a signer to the call of the first 
and second ministers, viz. : Rev. Samuel Street and 
Rev. Samuel Whittelsey. In 17 10 he was, with the

commenced the manufacture ot japanned and ti 
for this and the southern market ; and for sever.: 
kept a depot for the sale of his goods at Richmond, 
Virginia, in connection with his brother Selden. In, 
this enterprise they were very successful, and in a 
years they each had accumulated a very handsome 
property. The failing health of Selden compelled him 
to retire from the firm Upon this, Mr. Yale formed a 
business connection with his son-in-law, under the name 
of Yale and Dunby, and soon after purchased in his 
own name the old Mills at the first falls on the Quinni- 
piac River, which had borne the name of Tyler's Mills 
for more than one hundred years. He repaired and 
remodeled the whole concern, and changed the name 
to Yalesville. Here he entered large!) into the manu-

married Julia Ann, daughter of the late Capt. Thaddeus 
Rich, formerly of Bristol, Conn., May 25, 1830. He was 
appointed post master at Cheshire in 1832, and continued 
in the office with the exception of a few months until 
185 1, when he removed to New Haven. He was a Jus- 
tice of the Peace for about 18 years, and a selectman in 
Cheshire five consecutive years, clerk of the school soci- 
ety for about fourteen years, and judge of the Probate 
court in 1850-7, and was in 1853 elected a member of 
the common council of New Haven, and was re-elected 
for five consecutive years. In 1859 ne was elected chief 
of the Police of the city, of New Haven, and was re- 
elected to the same office in 1864. After serving .nearly 
two years he resigned the office, believing that he had 
contributed his share to the public service. 

In 1750 he prepared and published a genealogy of the 
Yale family, from the first of the name who appeared in 
this country down to 1850, He has in manuscript a 
genealogy of the Cook family, which he has carefully 
prepared and hopes soon to publish. Besides he has 
collected a large amount of genealogical matter for this 
work, and many of the Biographical notices which 
appear in this work, have been prepared by him. He was 
elected a member of the New England Historical and 
Genealogical Society, on the 7th of May, 1856, and is a 
member of the New Haven Colony Historical Society.

HON. WALTER BOOTH 

born in Woodbridge, Conn., Dec. 8th, i 
about sixteen years of age, he came to Meriden 
spent his first night in this town at the old white house 
on the Hanover road, which stands first northwest of 
the old residence of the late J. C. Breckenridge. The 
greater part of his life since then has been spent h 
;: few years excepted which he spent in business in 
Baltimore. But it is not only as a citizen of M< 
that Deacon Booth was known ; he was widely known 
throughout the state. At one time he was appointed to 
fill the office of General of our State Militia, both as a 
Brigadier and a Major General. In 1850 he was .- 
: 1 Washington to represent .the State of Connecticut in 
the House of Representatives, which position he held 
for two years; besides having previously held sundry 
minor offices in both town and state. At twenty-two 
years of age he was elected deacon in the Center 
Congregational Church in this city, which office he had 
held at the time of his death 56 years. He had also 
been a director in the Meriden National Bank 
twenty years, and at one time its President. 

But above all he was eminently a good man, a man o! 
strict integrity and a Christian man. Up to his 
illness he was active in all his church duties, and seldom 
was he absent from his place in the sanctuary and the 
Sabbath school where he was a teacher, and of which 
was the first superintendent, and also in the social 
er-meetings. Many will recall the fervor of his 
prayers and the unction of his exhortations in the so

meeting ; and the testimony of all who knew him, is 
uniform as to the steadfastness of his Christian principle, 
and the purity of his Christian character. 

He was a man of great simplicity and plainness of 
manners, and was averse to all pageantry and parade, 
and strictly economical in his expenditures. He showed 
himself ever ready to aid any enterprise, either in business, 
or civil and religious affairs, which promised to promote 
the secular or religious interests of his native town. 

His illness, which lasted little less than two weeks, 
was a malignant form of erysipelas ; first indicating 
itself in his face, and from there creeping to his brain, 
rendering him delirious for a greater part of the time. 
His friends, however, and physician, Dr. Catlin, did not 
deem him dangerous until Wednesday of the week in 
which he died. Dr. Townsend of New Haven was 
called in as counsel on Tuesday, and did not then think 
his chances for recovery were doubtful. But notwith- 
standing the tender nursing of his wife and friends who 
were continually by his bedside, and in spite of the skill 
and faithfulness of his physician, the destroying disease 
made headway, and on Saturday morning, April 30, 
1870, lapsing into unconsciousness, he gently and with- 
out a struggle or a groan breathed his life away. 

FENNER BUSH 

Son of John and Bathsheba (Dodge) Bush, was born in 
East Lyme, Conn., in the year 1791. His father died when 
Fenner was quite young, and as the family were in very 
poor circumstances, he was put out to live when but six 
years of age. He was employed in assisting on the 
farm and at house-work. When eleven years old he was 
put in the family of a ship-builder, and was to be taught 
the trade when old enough ; but soon after, his master

ambitious, and moreover a good workman, and soon had 
so much to do, that his former master offered to sell out 
to him. Fenner accepted the offer, and hired help to 
meet his engagements. 

He now found the necessity of something which had 
been entirely neglected ; for he could neither read nor 
keep accounts. He therefore gave up business, hired a 
room, and for two winters devoted himself to study, 
three months of which were given to learning to read. 
He again commenced business, and pursued his trade 
with considerable success. In 1816 he married Eunice 
Kirtland of Saybrook, and commenced keeping house, 
taking two apprentices to board. About this time he 
was taken sick with typhus fever, and for a long time 
was very sick ; and for nearly two years was unable to 
work. During his sickness he spent all he had earned 
from the beginning, and got into debt several hundred 
dollars. But by diligent attention to business he paid 
up his debts and bought the house that he lived in. 

In April, 1824, he removed from Saybrook to Men den 
and became interested in the comb business in connec- 
tion with Mr. Julius Pratt. He worked here with 
untiring industry twelve hours a day, at $1 25 per day ; 
after a few years the time was reduced to eleven hours, 
and the wages increased to $1 75 a day. For twenty 
years he labored here, when the shop was destroyed by 
fire, and he lost the earnings of twenty years. It was 
through his management that the shop was re-built and 
the machinery introduced early in the July following 
the fire. Mr. Bush has been interested in the comb 
business up to this time ; is now one of the largest 
stockholders, and until within a few years, was one of the 
directors. By steady and persevering industry and

LIEUT. COMFORT BITLEK 

Son of John and Sarah (Foster) Butler, was born in 
Middletown, Nov. 16, 1743. He was the sixth genera- 
tion from Richard Butler, one of the original proprietors 
in Hartford in 1639, and who was admitted freeman in 
Cambridge, Mass., in 1634. Comfort Butler was appren- 
ticed to the shoemaking business in Middletown at an 
early age, and being much troubled by a fellow apprentice 
of a quarrelsome disposition, he told his master that if 
he must fight, he preferred to fight the enemies of his 
country rather than one of his mates ; and that if he 
would allow him to enlist in the army he would serve 
out the balance of his time after his return. His master 
consented, and young Butler enlisted, although onl. N , 
about sixte reat surprise he found his fellow 

apprentice was a member of the same company. But it 
ems that their fighting propensities found ample scope 
without troubling each other, and they became fai 
friends and remained such until the of the war, 

when Comfort returned home, fulfilled his agreement

daughter of Divan Berry, in 1765, and removed to Wall-

viz. : Samuel, John, Hannah, Lemuel, Esther, Asa, Divan, 
Mary and Phebe. He died February 19, 1826. 

JOHN BUTLER 

Son of Comfort and Mary (Berry) Butler, was born in 
Meriden, Sept. 5, 1770. He was early in life apprenticed 
to a shoemaker, and subsequently engaged in the tanning 
and shoe-making business on his own account, and was 
the principal shoemaker and tanner in Meriden for 
nearly sixty years. He was considered by all who knew

ments, and when the time of roll-call arrived, he would 
leave his work and go and answei to his name, drill a 
while with the company, and return to his work again, 
thereby making the most >>t" his time. He was very 

regular in his habits, rising before the sun and re- 
tiring before nine in the evening. He was very exact 
in his accounts, and when he gave his apprentices money 

Jways wanted to know what use it was put to, and 
usually made a note of it. For instance, I find in his 
account-book among others, the following entry : " G 
Stephen Seymour twenty-five cents to see a 
jackass." He raised a numerous family of children, 
most of whom are residents of Meriden at this d 
and are universally esteemed by the community. Mr. 
Butler married ist, August 17, 1796, Ruth Parker, who 
died Sept. 30, 1799; m. 2d, March 15, 1800, Philomela

LEMUEL BUTLER 

Son of Comfort and Mary (Berry) Butler, was born in 
Meriden, Feb. 3, 1775. He was a farmer, a plain, unas- 
suming man, perfectly reliable at all times. He was a 
soldier in the war of 181 2, and raised a numerous family, 
most of whom now reside here, and are very estimable

BENJAMIN HOPKINS CATLIN 

The eldest son of Benjamin and Rhoda Catlin, was born 
in Harwinton, Litchfield county, Conn., Aug. 10, i8ot. 
His advantages for education were limited to the district 
school near his father's residence, till his sixteenth year, 
when an academy was built in his native town, in which 
he had the opportunity of pursuing the higher branches 
of study not then taught in our common schools. At 
this academy and under the tuition of the Rev. Luther 
Hart of Plymouth, he pursued his preparatory studies. 
He studied medicine and surgery nearly four years 
under the instruction of different physicians and at the 
Medical Institution of Yale College, where he received 
his diploma, March 4, 1825. July 13th of the same 
year, he opened an office in Haddam, Middlesex County, 
there being a vacancy occasioned by the death of Dr. 
Andrew Warner. The first week he had patients to 
attend, and in two or three months was in full practice. 
He remained here more than sixteen years, his practice 
extending into all the adjoining towns. The last day of 
March, 1842, Dr. Wyllis Woodruff of Meriden died. 
The same evening a messenger was sent to Dr. Catlin 
by some of the leading citizens of Meriden, requesting 
him to come to Meriden to fill the vacancy. He came 
up the next day, April 1, made arrangements for his 
removal, and commenced practice in Meriden April 5. 
He was elected a Fellow of the Connecticut Medical 
Society, and in 1840 received the honorary degree of 
M. D. from Yale College. In 1854 he was elected Vice- 
President of the Connecticut Medical Society, re-elected

in 1855, appointed President in 1 ind re-elected in 

1857. He has been a permanent member of the An 
can Medical Association since May, [853, and has since 
that time attended m the annual meetings as 

delegate from the New Haven County Medical S 
or from the State society. In i860 he was elected an 
Honorary Member of the New York State Men 
Society, and in 1869 a Corresponding Member of the 
Gynaecological Society of Boston. When the first Con- 
gregational society removed to West Meriden, Dr. 
Catlin was elected deacon, which office he has held until 
the present time. 

TIMOTHY FISHER DAVIS, M. IV 

Was the son of Eliphaz and Hannah (Sawyer) Davis, 
and was born in Marlboro, Mass., March 13. 1810. After 
receiving his early education at the common schools 
of his native town, he was apprenticed to a trade in 
Springfield, Mass. In 1837, having then a wife and two 
children, he entered the office of Dr. Riley of Goshen, 
Conn., to pursue the study of medicine, still working at 
his trade during his spare hours, for the support of his 
family. After leaving the office of Dr. Riley he prac- 
ticed his profession for a time in Goshen, and then 
concluded to remove to Litchfield as offering a wider 
field for his business. In Litchfield he remained several 
years, engaged in a constantly increasing and lucrative 
practice ; but hearing that there was a better opening in 
Plymouth, and being urged by a number of influential 
persons in that town, he removed his family there and 
comm> 1 practice about the year 1846. Here he 

led a drug store, built a house, and obtained an * x 
tensive practice in the town and beyond it, being 
frequently called to the neighboring towns of Wol

Bristol, Bethlem, and Watertovvn. These long rides 
in a hilly country soon wore upon his health, and he 
began looking for some easier field of practice. At this 
time his old friend and fellow student, Dr. William H. 
Allen of Meriden, died, and his widow wrote ±o Dr. Davis 
a letter urging him to remove to Meriden and take her 
late husband's practice. This was just the field that he 
was looking for, and accordingly in 1850 he removed to 
Meriden, and the year following removed his family. 




DR. TIMOTHY FISHER DAVIS. 

For nearly eighteen years Dr. Davis practiced his pro- 
fession in Meriden with success. He was a skillful and 
prudent operator, a careful and discriminating prescriber, 
ever improving the lessons of experience. In 1843 he 
received a diploma from the Botanic Medical Society of 
Connecticut, and in 1850 an honorary diploma, he being 
at that time Vice President of the Society. He after- 
wards held the office of President. He was one of the 
founders of the State Eclectic Medical Society, and held

Dr. Davis was most genial, kind and companionable 
in his social relations. Fond of society, with a genial 
humor which led him to enjoy the present and not be 
too careful of the future, quick in his perceptions, liber- 
al in pecuniary matters, and despising money-ho 
he lived in as much enjoyment as falls to the lot of m 
men, and was personally esteemed as a friend and 
physician throughout the community. He was not a 
man of fluent speech, and of consequence not what 
call a great talker. But he was a capital listener, and 
would attend with great eagerness and delight to hear 
men of sense talk. He was fond of horticulture, and 
evinced much taste and skill in the cultivation of his 
land. He had the true idea of success in this business, 
vi/. : that "a little land should be well tilled." 

In 1866 a small ^pimple on his lower lip began troub- 
ling him, and soon proved to be a cancer. At that time 
he was very busy, and thinking that he could not neglect 
his patients, he was careless of himself and suffered the 
ise to make great progress before he could be pre- 
vailed upon to do anything for it. He had at different 
times two operations, one by Dr. Ellsworth of Hartford, 
and the other by Dr. Gurdon Duck of New Yoik ; but 
the operations were undertaken too late. He lingered 
until the 24th of February, 1870, when he passed away 
in his sixtieth year. At the funeral services, the atten- 
dance of the most prominent citizens in the city testified 
to the hi j. 1 em in which he was held. The funeral 

services were performed by Rev. M. I. Steere. The 
rector of the Episcopal Church and the pastor of the 
Methodist Church were also present. His pastor

of him, " During his long and distressing sickness I do 
not think so much as a shadow of distrust or fear passed 
over his soul. He steadfastly contemplated death as 
though it were life. He saw light in its darkness, and 
the Father's love shining within its shadows. He felt 
that his life was with Christ in God, and that death 
could not disturb it. His language ever was, ' I am 
ready ; I am sinking into the arms of Jesus.' And the 
pressure of his hand as I rose from his bedside, often 
told me how, deeper than I, he felt the sentiments of 
hope and goodness." Dr. Davis was a member of the 
order of Free and Accepted Masons, and was buried 
with ■> Masonic honors. He married Miss Mary Parsons, 
November 1, 1832. She died April, 1834, in Pleasant 
Valley, Conn., leaving one child, Mary Markham 
Morehouse, who married Edwin Miner in 1853, and 
is now living in New Haven, a widow. Dr. Davis mar- 
ried for his second wife, Miss Moriva Hatch of Spring- 
field, Mass., in 1836, and had : Julia, born April, 1838; 
died December, 1839; Charles Henry Stanley, 1 born 
March 2, 1840; Julia Moriva, born July, 1844; Wilbur 
Fisk, born Sept., 1846, died July 15, 1847 ; Wilbur Fisk, 
born July, 1848; a graduate of the Cambridge Law 
School in 1870. 

1 Charles Henry Stanley Davis was born March 2, 1840. He was pre- 
pared for college in the public schools of Meriden, and pursued the studies 
of the Freshman and Sophomore classes under Rev. Messrs. Wilder and 
Foster. His plans for entering college were broken up by the war, and in 
1862 after a short residence in Springfield, Mass., he removed to New 
York and entered the medical department of the New York University, 
where he was graduated in the spring of 1865, attending the last course of 
lectures ever delivered by Dr. Valentine Mott. After attending a course 
of lectures at the Bellevue Hospital Medical school and following hospital 
practice, he removed to Boston, attending the summer course at the Har- 
vard University Medical school. During his residence in Boston he edited

has seriously affected our manufacturing and pecuniary

been deeply interested in our national conflict. After mature 
reflection, I have asked of my people a leave of absence for

In accordance with the purpose here expressed, he 
enlisted in the 8th Connecticut Regiment, sharing its 
fortunes under Burnside on the Atlantic coast as a pri- 
vate. He was promoted at length to a Lieutenancy, and 
served as an officer till wounded on the bloody field of 
Antietam, a musket ball entering his hip and disabling 
him for many months. Incapacitated thus for service in 
the ranks, he received an honorable discharge and re- 
turned to his people again to break unto them the bread 
of life and fight the good fight. His heart more than ever 
was with the country in its trial, and with the brave men 
who were fighting our battles. After preaching about a 
year, again he enlisted in the 7th Connecticut Regiment, 
and was promoted to a chaplaincy. Here he did valiant 
service for Christ and his country. He died at Wilming- 
ton, N. C, March 20,1865, °f typhoid fever, induced by 
fatigue and over exertion in ministering to the wants of 
the recently rescued federal prisoners in the hospital at 
that place. Mr. Eaton was a man of strong affection and 
love of home, of most deep and tender sympathies, and 
of ardent devotion to the cause of Christ and the country. 
He was a warm friend, when once friendship was estab- 
lished, and self-sacrificing for others weal. His charac- 
ter was impulsive. He was strong in his detestation of

of this man, it may be doubted whether any of all the

JOEL H GUY 

Son of Orchard and Lois (Hall ) Guy, was born in Meri- 
den June 4, 1804. He attended the district school 
winters, until he was sixteen years old. At the age of 
twenty he commenced teaching, and taught for ten win- 
ters at an average salary of eight dollars per month and 
board. He then acted as salesman for Meriden manufac- 
tures for four or five years. After this Mr. Guy, in 
connection with his brother, bought a store in Middle- 
town where he carried on business until 1840, though 
residing in Meriden most of the time. In 1840 he built 
the store now standing east of his present residence, and 
under the title of J. H. Guy & Co., he carried on the 
grocery business, the Company being the firm of Julius 
Pratt & Co. In 1846 Mr. Guy bought out his partner 
and carried on the business until about 1850. Mr. Guy 
has been a very energetic business man, honest and 
straightforward in all of his dealings. Since 1844 he 
has held the office of postmaster at different times for 
twelve years. He was President of the Meriden Bank 
thirteen year.-, and has been President of the 1st Nation- 
al Bank seven years. He has also held the office of con- 
stable, deputy-sheriff, assessor and collector, justice of 
the peace and alderman. He has also acted more than

any other man in Meriden as administrator and trustee of 
estates. Mr. Guy married Nov. 9, 1830, Semira Wetmore 
of Middlefield, and has one daughter born in 1833. He 
has been extensively engaged in the insurance busi- 
ness about twenty years. 

JULIUS HALL. 

The oldest house in Meriden is now standing about 
three miles east of the center. It was built by Daniel 
Hall in the earlier part of the last century. He was the 
grandson of John Hall, the first emigrant, and was born 
January 27, 1689. His son John was born Jan. 29, 1724, 
and died May 13, 1795, leaving twelve children. Joseph, 
the fifth son, born Oct. 8, 1770, succeeded to the old 
homestead. He died March 13, 1 831, leaving six chil- 
dren, of whom two, Sherman, born April 26, 1806, and

house in which he now lives, just north of the old house.

EDWARD WALKER HATCH, M. D. 

Was born in Blandford, Hampden Co., Mass., Aug. 31, 
1818 I lis parents were Timothy Linus and Sarah 
Walker (Shepard) Hatch. He was graduated at the 
Berkshire Medical College, Pittsfield, Mass., in the < 
of 1842. He was married Oct. 15, 1846, to Miss Nancy 
C. Boies, daughter of David Boies Esq., of Blandford. 
He was then in the practice of his profession in New 
Jersey. He removed from New Jersey to Meriden in 
December, 1849. 1 In 1853 he built and occupied the 
house on the corner of Main and Butler streets, now 
occupied by Henry C. Butler, Esq. He was appointed 
trustee of the State Reform School by the Legislature 
of 1858, and in July, 1859 was appointed by the li ustees 
superintendent. He still occupies that position. He 
made a public profession of his faith in Christ in 1 
and in 1853 he connected himself with the i

and still retains his connection there. His success as

superintendent of the Reform School is well known 
not only to the people of this town, but to the people of 
the State and to all in the country at large who are 
interested in the success of such institutions. Dr. 
Hatch was a warm and earnest advocate of the Union 
all through the war of the rebellion. He has always 
been interested in the cause of education, and is well 
known as an able, zealous advocate of total abstinence. 




EDWARD WALKER HATCH, M. D. 

He is active as one of the executive committee of the 
Connecticut Temperance Union, is earnestly interested

DR. ISAAC I. HOUGH 

Was born in Wallingford, in the parish of Meriden, in 
1 78 1. His father, Dr. Ensign Hough, commenced 
practice in this town in 1769, and died in 18 13. The 
parents of Dr. Isaac Hough were small in stature and 
weight. His mother especially was a feeble, delicate 
woman. Their son Isaac was large from his birth, and 



BI0GRAPHI1 



567 



in childhood was so heavy that his mother could not 
lift him ; and when no one was near to raise him into 
lap, she would stretch out her limbs and roll him up. 
When ten weeks old he weighed twenty pounds, and 
previous to his death had attained the weight of about 
three hundred and fifty pounds. He studied medicine 
under his father, and under the instruction of Dr. Hall 
of Middletown. His father requested him not to marry 




ISAAC I. HOUGH, M. D. 

early, as several members of the family would be de- 
pendent upon him. The result was, he did not marry 
at all. 

At the time he commenced practice, Meriden 
contained about twelve hundred inhabitants; but his 
practice extended to all adjoining towns, and was for 
several years quite extensive. He was a very effii 
practitioner and believed fully in the power of medicine 
and administered it freely. He had a good library of 
medical and miscellaneous works, and in his earlier 
years his reading was extensive. He took and read for 
many years the North 'can Review and most of 



$68 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

the medical journals published while he was in practice. 
For a person so large and fleshy he was remarkably 
active in body and mind. He always kept some of the 
best horses in the country and drove them rapidly. He 
was an early riser, up and off to see his patients earlier 
than they -were ready to receive him. He spent but 
little time investigating cases, but would see at once 
the prominent points of acute cases, and prescribe with 
skill and good jugdment. His prognosis of a cure was 
generally very correct. He had no taste for the manage- 
ment of chronic cases, and no patience to listen to tne 
multitudinous complaints of chronic patients. He much 
preferred to laugh at what appeared to him their absurd 
notions, and consequently would often lose their confi- 
dence. He had great faith in the medical properties of 
opium, and prescribed it freely in fevers and in acute 
and chronic cases. His presciptions unfortunately led 
some of his friends and patients to its habitual use. 
His charges for professional services were very moderate, 
and he accumulated no property from that source. 

For many years he kept a public house in the building 
now standing on the corner of Broad and Main streets ; 
and during a portion of the time he found it very profita- 
ble, especially during the war of 1812. From this source 
he accumulated considerable property, and retired from 
active business at the early age of fifty-three. It is be- 
lieved that this was an unfortunate movement for him. 
When Dr. Catlin moved to Meriden in 1842, Dr. Hough 
took a deep interest in his welfare, and rode in consulta- 
tion with him more than he had done for several years 
previous. For several of the latter years of his life he 
read but little, as it affected his head unpleasantly, and he 
thought it imprudent to indulge in this pleasure. He

stopped daily at the Doctor's inn. He was so remarka- 
in personal appearance that he was alwa . • ticed 
and remembered by those who saw him. According to 
tlv custom ol those days his house was well stocked 
with the best of liquors (none of the mixed poisonous 
liquors so h use. t, but he never tasted them

gave up business so early in life. It affected his health and 
mind unfavorably. Being naturally so active, he suffered 
from ennui. At the best he was a poor sleeper, and his 
wakefulness was increased by his lack of employment of 
body and mind during the day. He has been known to 
take his horse and wagon and ride twenty or thirty miles 
till he was thoroughly fatigued, when he would sleep 
well. He almost uniformly called himself well, except 
to his most intimate friends. He never could bear to have 
people talk to him of their bodily complaints ; so he 
seldom troubled other people with a recital of his own. 
Says Dr. Catlin ( to whom I am indebted for most of the 
facts in this sketch of Dr. Hough) : " I knew that he 
suffered much pain in his limbs, and for several years he 
had an organic affection of the heart. He expected to 
die suddenly, and was not disappointed. He had been 
unwell more than usual for a few days. I was called in 
to see him several times ; he was sometimes in his chair, 
at others on the lounge. I was in one afternoon, when 
he appeared more comfortable and quite cheerful. Early 
the next Monday (I think), word was sent me that he 
was dead. I found him on 'the floor. He had appar- 
ently got up, put on his dressing-gown, slid down by the 
side of his bed, and died alone, evidently from dropsy 
of the heart. He was fearful he should give his friends 
trouble; either by being confined by sickness, when his 
great weight would be burdensome, or after he was dead. 
To provide against the latter event, he went to Hartford 
some years before his death, and was measured for his 
coffin, which he had made, boxed up and sent home. He 
told me he did not suppose the maker expected he would 
examine it, but he had a desire to see how the work was 
done. He appeared satisfied with its appearance. It

was kept in the loft of a carriage house." Dr. Hough 
died in the building now occupied (1870) by the 1st 
National Bank. 

He was very sensitive in regard to his weight. He 
once drove on to the hay-scales, and while engaged 
in conversation a bystander endeavored to w< 
the doctor with his horse and gig, hoping afterw 
to weigh the horse and gig, thus getting his exact 
weight ; but the doctor happened to look around, and 
discovered what was going on, and he instantly whipped 
up his horse and left the scales before the operation was 
completed. Dr. Hough died Feb. 26, 1852, sc. 71 years. 
I remember hearing the following verses when I was a 

boy : 

" Dr. Hough, he keeps good stuff, 

And lives just under the steeple ; 

By hook or by crook, he keeps his good looks 

And takes the cash from the people. - ' 

These lines so pleased the doctor that he was often in 
the habit of repeating them. 

LEVI SILLIMAN IVES 

Was born in Meriden parish on the 16th of September, 
1797. At an early age he removed with his parents to 
] ,ewis county, N. Y., where he lived until he was sent to 
the academy at Lowville. During the last months of 
the war with Great Britain he served in the army r but 
upon the return of peace went back to school, entering 
Hamilton college in 18 16. At first he studied for the 
ministry of the Presbyterian church, but before he was 
ordained, illness compelled him to leave the college, and 
n his recovery to health his religious views became 
changed and he allied himself with the Pro ' 
copal denomination. In 1S20 he removed to New York 



57 2 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

where he studied theology under Bishop Hobart, who 
ordained him in August, 1822. Three years later he 
married Rebecca, a daughter of the Bishop. After his 
ordination his first mission was to Batavia, Genesee Co. ; 
subsequently he took charge of Trinity church, Philadel- 
phia, where he was ordained to the priesthood by Bishop 
White, and in 1827 removed to Lancaster, Pa., and offi- 
ciated at Christ church. During the next year he re- 
turned to New York and served as assistant minister at 
Christ church for about six months, when he became 
rector of St. Luke's church. Here he remained until he 
was consecrated Bishop of North Carolina in 183 1. 
While in North Carolina he became quite popular for his 
efforts in behalf of education and his success in providing 
for the spiritual welfare of the slaves. He also became 
widely known as a theological author from his works on 
the "Apostles' Doctrine and Fellowship," and the "Obe- 
dience of Faith," published in New York in 1849. 

When the Oxford tract excitement broke out in the 
Episcopal church, he strongly sided with the tractarian 
movement, and this position caused his alienation from 
his diocese. The fact was that he doubted the truth of 
the Protestant faith for a long time, and in 1852, while on 
a visit to Rome, openly renounced his faith and was ad- 
mitted to the Catholic church. This conversion on his 
part was severely denounced by the Protestant religious 
papers in the United States, and upon his return he de- 
fended the act in a work entitled "The Trials of a Mind 
in its Progress to Catholicism." (London and Boston, 
1864). After his return to America, he became Pro- 
fessor of Rhetoric in St. Joseph's theological seminary, 
and lectured in the convents of the Sacred Heart and 
the Sisters of Charity. He also occasionally lectured in

This was in the summer of 1836. Mr. Lewis returned 
in the fall and commenced business again with Mr. 
Lemuel Curtis as partner, under the name of Lewis and 
Curtis, in a factory belonging to Mr. Samuel Cook in 
East Meriden. After about two years the partnership 
was dissolved, Mr. Curtis coming to Meriden center. 
Mr. Lewis soon after purchased a house and small farm 
about one mile east of Meriden center, and built a shop 
and put in a horse-power. Business increased to such 
an extent that a small engine was put in ; but that 
proving to be insufficient, he bought the factory where 
he first commenced business with Mr. Cowles. He 
soon after associated with Daniel B. Wells, a former 
apprentice, under the name of I. C. Lewis & Co. Mr. 
Wells died soon after, and Mr. Lewis bought his interest. 
In 1852 the Britannia Company was formed, with Mr. 
Lewis as President. He remained President of the 
company about twelve years, when he declined holding 
the office any longer. He is still a member of the com- 
pany, and takes an active interest in the business. Mr. 
Lewis married in 1836, Harriet, daughter of Noah 
Pomeroy, and has had six children, viz. : Melissa N., 
Martha E., Henry J., Isaac, Frank, and Katie A. Three 
are now living. Mr. Lewis represented the town in the 
Legislature in 1848, 1859, 1862, and 1866. He has 
given largely toward the support of the Universalist 
society in Meriden, and for fifteen years has been super- 
intendent of the Sunday-school. Mr. Lewis commenced 
life without a dollar, and by his own exertions and strict 
attention to business has accumulated a large fortune. 
He never had a note protested, never was sued, nor 
has he ever entered a suit against any man. Uni- 
versally loved and respected, he affords another example

WILLIAM \\ I.V.MAN 

Son of Andrew and Anna ( Hall) Lyman, was born in 

'. .'i I ford, Vt., March 29, 1821. When seven years 
age his father died, and he removed to Northford G 
where he lived six years. In 1X36 he came to Men 
and learned the trade of making britannia ware, of 
Griswold & Couch, serving five years. In 1844 he went 
into business on his own account, manufacturing britan- 
nia spoons in connection with Ira Couch, but after a 
short time bought him out. The shop stood a few 
north of his present residence. He remained there two 
years, and then removed his works to the Twiss factory 
in Prattsville. He was in business here for a short time 
with Lemuel J. Curtiss, but finally dissolved partnership 
and removed to the Frary shop, near the present works 
of the Malleable Iron Co. He was there about five 
years. He has been a member and director of the Meri- 
den Britannia Co. since its organization. In Dec. 1858 
he patented a fruit can which is known throughout the 
country as " Lyman's Fruit Jar." One house in Dela- 
ware has bought over 60,000 of these jars. He has also 
patented an ice pitcher, copper bottom tea-pot, butter 
dish and numerous other articles. Mr. Lyman represent- 
ed Meriden in the Legislature in 1849, and is President 
of the Meriden Cutlery Co. In 1844 he married 
Roxanna I and has one daughter, who married

JOHN PARKER 

Son of Stephen and R 1 Parker was born in 

Cheshire, Conn., in ving his early education 



57^ HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

in the common schools of his native town, he at an early 
period of life took a decided stand on the side of Christ, 
and even then it was his earnest desire to prepare for the 
ministry and devote his life to preaching the gospel. To 
this end he entered upon the study of theology at the 
Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn., where he was 
graduated in 183 1. He then removed to Massachusetts 
and was stationed at Webster two years. He afterwards 
supplied the pulpit at Newtown in 1833-4; Holliston, 
1835; Lowell, 1836-7; Lynn, 1838-9; Holliston, 1840. 
In 1840 he came to Meriden and entered into business 
with his brother Charles. 

In 1843 the Second Adventists were making a great 
excitement, and had quite a large number of followers in 
Meriden. Mr. Parker collected a number of these to- 
gether and formed a society of Primitive Methodists. 
They assembled for worship in the building now used by 
the Messrs. Parkers as a spectacle-shop. It then stood 
where the office is now situated. It was through the 
exertions of Mr. Parker that the Methodist church grew 
and prospered in the town ; and he, with his brother 
Charles, jointly contributed, between thirty and forty 
thousand dollars toward the erection of the present 
church edifice. During his residence in Meriden, Mr. 
Parker has enjoyed the confidence and respect of the 
people, and has always been looked to as a friend and- 
counselor. He has filled acceptably the offices of 
Selectman, Justice of the Peace, and Judge of Probate ; 
and in 1870 was elected a Representative to the State 
Legislature. Mr. Parker was married in March, 1832, 
to Miss Emily Ward of Ashfield, Mass. She died 
June 1, 1867. He married for his second wife, Grace A. 
Belden, January 22, 1868. The following children were

years old, when penniless and scarcely possessing a 
knowledge of the English alphabet, he commenced the 
world for himself. 

His first great object was to secure an education which 
would enable him to transact the common business in- 
cident to a life of action and enterprise, such as his 
youthful preception had already foreshadowed as his 
destiny. In attempting to accomplish this, he was 
obliged to struggle with difficulties which those alone 
can rightly estimate who have had the same to contend 
with. The meagre earnings of the summer, with the 
most rigid economy, afforded a bare surplus to apply to 
the purpose of his education during the winter ; and 
often this was lawfully claimed and obtained by his step- 
father. 

At fifteen he commenced peddling tin ware, but this 
gave offence to some of his nearest relatives. After 
repeated solicitations by other membeis of the family, 
he was induced about three years afterwards to commence 
an apprenticeship with a carpenter and joiner ; a trade 
in those days being esteemed next to a profession. He 
continued, however, but a short time in this employment. 
He had already selected the business most congenial to 
his feelings for his future occupation, and returning to 
his peddling wagon, he made use of it as the most direct 
and honorable means within his power, by which he 
could eventually make himself master of that business, 
and establish himself in the manufacture of tin ware. 
Accordingly at twenty, he apprenticed himself to a tin- 
smith for six months, for which he paid a stipulated sum, 
and in that almost incredibly short period, gained such 
an insight into the business as to enable him to become 
a complete master of the trade, which usually required 



rRAPHi 579 

four or fivi • to learn. In the succeeding; year he 

! in the manufacture of plain tin ware. During 
same year he married Miss Mary Merriman, a lineal 
descendant of Lieut. Nathaniel Merriman, who was one 
of the first settlers of Wallingford, and who commanded 
in the early Indian wars. During the eleven y< 
succeeding, he prosecuted a small yet successful bush 
at various localities. In the Autumn of 1807, he re- 
moved to Plymouth, Conn., where he continued his busi- 
ness until 1 S 1 5, with the exception of one winter spent 
at Baltimore. It was during his residence at Plymouth 
that the second war with Great Britain commenced, of 
which he was an enthusiastic supporter. I le wa red 

a lieutenant's commission in the regular army, which 
however he did not accept. In 1815 he returned to 
Wallingford, from whence he removed to Meriden in 
1 818, where he permanently established his business 
and purchased a farm on which he ever afterward lived. 
From this time he continued gradually to increase the 
yearly amount of his manufactures, yet not so fast as to 
endanger his credit. He was among the first to engage 
extensively in the manufacture of japanned and orna- 
mented tin ware in this country. In 1839 he retired 
nominally from his business, which he left to his sons, 
and applied his energies, which were not in the least 
abated, to the improvement of his farm. 

During his residence in Meriden he exercised a con- 
trolling influence in its affairs. He held all the oflfi 
within its gift, and that of selectman repeatedly until he 
declined an election. He filled the office of justice of 
the peace by appointment of the State Legislature, as 
long as it possessed the power to appoint. During his 
whole residence in Meriden he was scarcely ever removed

by a change in party politics. His knowledge of com- 
mon law, and his impartial judgment may be estimated 
by the fact, that of all the cases which were ever brought 
before him, an appeal from his decision was never 
carried to the county court. An ardent advocate of pro- 
gression and reform, and contending for the broadest 
religious and political liberty,, he earnestly urged the 
necessity of calling the convention which remodeled the 
constitution of the state, and expunged many of those 
statutes which have been known as " blue laws." In 
1832 he was elected a member of the House of Repre- 
sentatives, and in 1837 he was chosen senator from the 
sixth district, and in that capacity everted his influence 
for the abolition of the law which imprisoned for debt. 
In 1833 when the Meriden Bank was established he was 
appointed one of the directors, and in 1849 was chosen 
president, which office he shortly after resigned. Mr. 
Pomeroy died Nov. 23, 1868, in the eighty-second year 
of his age. 

JULIUS PRATT 

Was born Nov. 24, 1791, at Saybrook, Conn., and was 
the son of Deacon Phineas (and Hepsibah) Pratt, who 
was the son of Azariah, (born Aug., 1710), who was the 
son of John Jr. (born Sept. 5, 1671), who was the son of 
John (born Feb. 20, 1644), who was the eldest son of 
William, who came to this country with Rev. Thomas 
Hooker in 1633. Julius Pratt married Lydia, daughter 
of John De Wolfe of Westbrook, January 9, 181 7. She 
was born March 18, 1795. His father's residence, where 
he himself lived in early life, was about one mile west 
of Pautapaug Point. At the age of fifteen he com- 
menced work with his brothers Abel and Phineas, in 
ivory-comb making, and at the age of twenty-two en-

and in connection with Messrs. Bush Williams, How 
Reed, Starke}-, Rogers and Spencer, 1 unmen 
the manufacture of ivory combs on Harbor brook, a 
little south of the Middletown and Waterbury turn] 
bridge. Finding his water-power too small for his in- 
creasing business he removed to what is now ca 
Prattsville. Joined with Mr. Webb he continued to be 
a leading member of the ivory comb business, and his 
energy and enterprise contributed in a large degree to 
the development of this branch of manufactures, which 
in a few years distanced foreign competition, and at the 
present time is a large and important business-, the 
goods being exported to nearly all pails of the world. 
While Mr. Pratt was heavily engaged in business at 
Lttsville, he was also interested in another company at 
v Hollow, afterward at Hanover, where much of his 
time was occupied. He was one of the pioneers in the 
manufacture of cutlery, and had the pleasure while 
living, of seeing that business well established on a firm 
and profitable basis. He was a stockholder and director 
in the Home National Rank of Meriden from its com- 
mencement. In this connection, as in all other business 
relations, his counsel was it and relied upon at all 

tim< s. 

As a citizen he always enjoyed the respect and 
confidence of the community where he lived. Uncom- 
promising in principle, unflinching in the discharge of 
duty, sagacious as an adviser, modest in demeanor, 
active and liberal in private and public charities, and 
• tionate t< his family and friends, it may well 

be said that the best blood of the Puritans Mowed in his

veins. He never sought for preferment, but was called 
to represent his town in the State Legislature of 1852, 
and was elected Senator of the Sixth District of Con- 
necticut in 1854. In his business intercourse he may 
have left the impression at times that he was austere ; 
but his apparent sternness arose from the promptness 
and decision with which he always transacted his busi- 
ness. His language was direct, final and rigidly busi- 
ness like. He was seldom misunderstood, and but few 
ever attempted to swerve or cajole him. Beneath his 
apparent harshness was an inner life as gentle as a dove. 
He loved with a woman's heart, but he spoke with the 
promptness of a business man, and in all his movements 
there was a kind of military precision which, to the un- 
observing, might easily be misapprehended. He died 
August 31, 1869. His children are, Harriet Melinda, 
born April 24, 181 8 ; Julius H., born August 1, 1821 ; 
William McLain, born December 12, 1837. 1 

BENJAMIN TWISS 

Was born in Meriden Oct. 31, 1798. He early com- 
menced the manufacture of wooden clocks in Prattsville, 
and did a large business. Later in life he manufactured 
coffee-mills at the same place. He was one of the most 
active men of the day in town affairs, holding at different 
times the offices of constable, justice of the peace, select- 
man and assessor. He was appointed postmaster in

Buenos Ayres to Valparaiso, via Mendoza and the Andes. He enlisted 
as a private in the 8th Regiment of Connecticut Volunteer Infantry, in 
May, 1862, and was wounded in the battle of Antietam, September 17, 
1862. He was promoted to the office of second lieutenant in November,

HOX. DEXTER K. WK'.ll 1 

i born in Windsor, Vermont, on the 27th of June, 
1 82 1. His ancestors were among the first sen 
Vermont, and one of them was killed in the frontier 
wars with the Canadians and Indians. Alpheus Wri 
his father, held a commission in the war of 18 12, and 
was severely wounded in the battle at Plattsburg. 

During the boyhood of Dexter, his father removed to 
the northern part of New York, where he carried on the 
milling and lumber business, together with a woolen 
factory. All of his sons were employed in these various 
branches of business, and each learned some useful trade. 
Dexter, however, being of a studious turn of mind, pre- 
pared himself for colic I entered the University at 
Middletown, from which he graduated in 1845. In the 
same year, he became principal of the Meriden Academy, 
and continued as such fur nearly a year and a half; 
having given instruction to many youths who are now 
among the energetic and successful business men of 
Meriden. He was noted for his firm discipline and thor- 
ough teaching; and the Academy flourished under his 
administration. 

In the year 1846, he entered the Yale law school at 
Haven, from which h< 1 ed in 1848. During 

his studies at Yale, as well as throughout his collegiate 
course, he ga> l1 promise of future eminence in his 

profession ; and particularly in that branch of it , 
taining to advocacy. In 1848 he commenced the 



584 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

practice of law in Meriden, and soon after married Miss 
Maria H. Phelps, daughter of Col. E. L. Phelps, of East 
Windsor, Conn. 

In 1849 ne was elected senator for the 6th senatorial 
district, and was the youngest man that had ever been 
elected to the state senate from that district. He served 
with credit to himself and satisfaction to his constituents. 
After the adjournment of the Legislature, he sailed for 
California, where he remained for two years practising 
in the territorial courts and taking part in the early 
political history of that state. 

In 1 85 1 he returned to Meriden and continued the 
practice of his profession until 1862, when he entered 
the Union army as colonel of the fifteenth regiment, 
Connecticut volunteers. His practice in Meriden during 
this period v/as large and successful, and he had the 
confidence and esteem of all men as a thorough lawyer, 
an honest man, and a good citizen. The people of 
Meriden are largely indebted to his cultivation and taste 
as a pioneer in beautifying the village, and in urging 
forward general public improvements, and his spirit in 
those matters has become, largely from his example, the 
prevailing spirit of the people of the present city. 

He was commissioned Lieut. Col. of the 141I1 Regi- 
ment of Connecticut Volunteers, early in 1862; and 
he assisted in raising a company for that Regiment. 
He had also aided in raising companies for every prece- 
ding regiment, for that purpose speaking in different parts 
of the State. Owing to his zeal in the cause of the 
Union, Gov. Buckingham, without consulting Col. 
Wright's wishes, commissioned him Colonel of the 15th 
Regiment of Connecticut Volunteers ; thus promoting 
him before he entered the field. The latter Regiment

he recruited to its full numbei and six hundred in exc 
in an unprecedentedly short time, by hu 

tions and great influence and popularity. 

His regiment went to Virginia in August, 1862, where 
for several months he commanded a brigade. Me par- 
ticipated in the battle of Fredericksburg, Dec. 13, i> 
under Burnside. After about a year's service in the 
held, he was discharged upon surgeon's certificat< 
disability, and subsequently, upon special request of 
Gov. Buckingham, he was appointed commissions 
the Board of Enrollment for the 2nd Congressional 
District, the duties of which he discharged with marked 
ability and zeal in the cause of the nation. In 1863 he 
was elected to the General Assembly of Conn, as a 
representative from the town of Meriden. 

Having served in the field and as commissioner for 
three years with great pecuniary sacrifice, Col. Wright 
removed, at the close of the war, to New Haven, Conn. ; 
where he resumed the practice of the law, and has con- 
tinued therein to the present time. He has served as 
United States assistant District Attorney for a term of 
years, and discharged the duties of that office with 
ability and satisfaction to the public. 

His present law partner is H. Lynde Harrison, Esq., 
who is himself somewhat identified with the history of 
Wallingford. Mr. Harrison taught school in Walling- 
ford in 1858-9, and represented the 6th - . dal dis- 
trict, of which Meriden is a part, in 1865 and 1866; and 
he is a young man of ability and promise. 

Mr. Wright is a thoroughly educated man. His 
studies are not confined to the legal profession al 
but he is well read in every department of 
ture and national science. He has even pursued his 



586 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

studies into medicine ;. and several years ago, the hono- 
rary degree of M. D. was conferred upon him by a 
medical college in the city of New York. His maxim 
is that of Lord Bacon, " All knowledge is my province ;" 
and he is not satisfied with the mastery of one*profession 
only. His personal integrity has never been questioned, 
and his professional honor is fully up to the high stand- 
ard always maintained by the Connecticut bar. His 
mind works quickly and logically, and has been well 
trained for the successful practice of the most drastic 
profession pursued by men. His diction is at all times 
polished and elegant ; his command of language and 
power of characterization is almost wonderful ; and his 
manners are dignified and well calculated to please all 
with whom he comes in contact. As a lawyer he is re- 
markably strong ; as an examiner of witnesses he is 
powerful; in the presentation of facts in argument to 
court or jury, he is clear and forcible ; in the preparation 
of his cases for trial, thorough and exhaustive ; and, in 
his drafting of pleadings, neat, clear and logical. 

Since his removal to New Haven in 1864, he has, by 
strict attention to his business, built up a large and 
lucrative practice. He is a laborious worker, and is 
devoted to his calling, and has attained a position in 
his profession, which his many friends are glad to see 
him occupy. 

Col. Wright, though a republican in sentiment, par- 
ticipates but little in politics ; yet the republicans have 
few men in Connecticut who could shed more honor 
upon their party than he, were he to actually enter upon 
political life. Though not a native of Meriden, he has 
been for so many years identified with her interests and 
progress, that this notice of him is due more to the town

than to him ; and the people riden can nevei 

less than a strong interest in his future success and 
welfare. 

[LLIAM VVLE 

Son of Samuel and Eunice (Payne) Yale, was born 
March 13, 1784. He attended the schools of the town 
until he was old enough to work, when he was appren- 
ticed to learn the tin business, and finally went into the 
business on his own account. It was his custom to | ■ 
Boston and purchase a box of tin ; then with the assistance 
of a sail-maker, he would make two bags in which he 
would put the tin; then swinging it across his hoi 
back, he would bring it to Meriden, and make it 
long tin combs, pint-cups and other articles. 

In 1 81 7 he bought the farm of Benjamin Merriam, 
which comprised nearly the whole of what is now West 
Meriden. The land was purchased for $2500, he giving 
a note for $1800 for one year, and paying the remainder 
in cash. Pie- !ous to the note coming due; he learned 
that it was the intention of Mr. Merriam to demand 
ment of it in specie, and he prepared himself 
accordingly, by gradually accumulating the whole 
amount in sixpence and one shilling pieces. As he 
brought the coin home, Lyman Collins and Joel Hall 
counted it and put it in bags, upon which they put their 
private seal. This was continued until the whole amount 
was deposited in the ba The day that the n

588 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

After a few remarks, the decanter with sugar, lemons, 
etc., was brought out, according to the custom of the 
times, and all took a drink. The stranger then remark- 
ed, that he was the sheriff of Hartford county, and had 
come to demand payment of the note which was due 
that day, and that he was ordered to demand specie pay- 
ment. " Very well," replied Mr. Yale, " I have antici- 
pated your demand, and am prepared to meet it." He 
then told Messrs. Collins and Hall to bring out the bags 
and examine the seals, and they were found all right. 
Mr. Yale then untied the bags and emptied the contents 
on the table, first sixpences and then shillings ; then 
turning to the sheriff said, "There is $1800. which I tend- 
er to you in payment of my note, due this day." The 
sheriff was completely nonplussed. " It will take me a 
week to count it," said he. " Very well," replied Mr. 
Yale, "I don't doubt it, for it has taken me six months 
to get it." The sheriff took another drink, then filling 
the bags, he took his departure, after asking Mr. Yale 
if he did his own coining. 

Mr. Yale took an active interest in the affairs of the 
town, and was much respected by his townsmen. He 
married Mary Johnson, Nov. 20, 1803, and died Jan. 23, 
1833, in the forty-ninth year of his age. Mary, his wife, 
died April 1, 1854, se. sixty-nine years. His son, Edwin 
Rodolphus Yale, was born Aug. 8, 1804, and was ex- 
tensively engaged in business in Meriden for many 
years. He is now the proprietor of the Mansion House, 
Brooklyn, N. Y. 

SAMUEL YALE 

Was the son of Samuel and Eunice (Payne) Yale, and 
was born April 4, 1786. He was the third of a family 
of nine children, six sons and three daughters. At an

his father worked the nail machine with their own 
hands, and each nail was headed separately. The elder 
Mr. Vale soon after commenced the manufacture of 
] 'cuter buttons, which met with a ready 
working with him. The father died Sept. [8, 1804. in 
his forty-seventh year, and after his death the son < 
tinned the business in connection with his brother Hi- 
ram, employing two or three men. Samuel and Hiram 
afterwards removed to Richmond, Va., where they 
remained several years engaged in the tin business. 
They finally returned to Meriden, where, in conned 
with two other brothers, William and Charles, they com- 
menced the manufacture of tin and britannia ware. 
Their goods were sold chiefly by peddlers. The Vales 
were very enterprising men and imported from England 
more skilled artizans, and soon took the lead in the 
manufacture of britannia goods, such as tea-sets, church 
services. 1 etc. Charles and Hiram removed to Walling- 
ford and commenced business, and had for an apprentice 
Mr. Samuel Simpson. Samuel Yale remained in Meri-

pying a shop on Liberty-st., and afterwards on the cor- 
ner of Broad and East Main-st. He continued 1 
until 1858, when he retired from business. The shop is 
still standing a -t from Broad-st.

to Meriden when lit.' was sixteen years old, a poor I 
and was apprenticed to David Plant, to learn the busi-

the meantime, in Meriden. When he returned to Meri- 
den to live, he was engaged in numerous enterprises, at 
one time manufacturing augers, and at another as one of 
the firm of Parker, Snow, Brooks & Co., occupying the 
buildings now used by Parker Brothers. Mr. Bronks 
was one of the pioneers in building the Hartfor I, N w

town to the State Legislature in 1839, ^44, 1855 and 
1857. He was very active in church affairs, and gave 
the land on which the West Meriden Congregate 
church was built, and the sum of one thousand dollars 
towards the building. He had a good knowledge of 
human nature, and a quick perception of the character 
and intent of men. He was ardent in his temperament,

house just north of the depot in West Meriden. 

LEMUEL J. CURTIS 

Son of Elisha and Abigail (Hall) Curtis, was born Jan. 
15, 18 14. He attended school until he was sixteen years 
old, when he was apprenticed to Ira Yale of Wallingford 
to learn the britannia ware business. After serving 
about twelve months, he, together with Mr. Wm. Elton, 
bought out Mr. Yale and formed a partnership in which 
they continued about one year. In the summer of 1836 
Mr. Curtis and Mr. Isaac C. Lewis went to Illinois, in- 
tending to settle there and carry on business together ; 
but Mr. Lewis was taken sick, and they soon returned 
to Meriden, and formed a partnership and commenced 
manufacturing britannia ware about two miles east of 
the town. The partnership was soon dissolved, and Mr. 
Curtis, together with his brother Edwin E. Curtis, manu- 
factured britannia ware in Meriden for a few years. Mr. 
Lemuel Curtis then formed a partnership with Mr. Will- 
iam Lyman, and when the Meriden Britannia Company 
was formed in 1852, they both became members of the 
compan\ Mr. Curtis has been one of the directors of 
the company since its organization, and an active mem-

Meek-tin business of Captain Danforth of Rocky Mill, 
and soon after coming here he commenced business in a 
small shop near the residence of Mr. Samuel Clark, in 
Clarksville, now Frary ville, manufacturii pots and 

other articles from block-tin. In 1810 he built the house 
just north of the residence of Mr. Wm. Lyman, and n 
this he built a shop which he occupied until 1842, when 
he retired from business. Mr Griswold wa ery ener-

ELI IVES 

Son of Othniel and Sarah (Yale) Ives was born in the 
house now occupied by his brother Othniel Ives Jr. in 
the eastern part of the town, January, 1809. He re- 
mained on the farm until his twenty-second year, when 
with Mr. Noah Pomeroy he commenced the manufacture 
of tin ware. In 1837 ne went to Wetumpka, Alabama, 
and commenced business in which he retained an inter- 
est, although living most of the time in Meriden. In 
1843 he bought the Tyler mills in Yalesville, and carried 
on the milling business and manufacture of britannia 
spoons. In 1849, m company with Mr. Bennett Jeralds 
he commenced manufacturing britannia spoons and 
other articles in Prospect, Conn. The business was

carried on until 1854. In 1852 Mr. Ives was admitted 
as a partner in the firm of Goodrich and Rutty, and

the firm was changed to Goodrich, Ives and Rutty. 
Mr. Goodrich retired in 1864, and Edwin R. Crocker 
and Nelson Payne were admitted, making the iirm I 
Rutty and Co. He has been a member of the common 
council, and also one of the aldermen. i lis services 
have been often called for in the settlement of es I

LAUREN MERRIM 

Son of Asaph and Damaris Merriman, was born in 
Meriden in 1787. He early commenced the manufac-

ORVILLE H. PLATT 

Son of Daniel G. and Almira Piatt, was born in 
Washington, Litchfield county, Conn., July 19, 1827. 
He received his early education in his native town, and 
studied law with G. H. Hollister Esq., of Litchfield. 
He was admitted to the bar, and in the spring of 185 1 
he removed to Meriden and commenced the practice of 
law. He was appointed Judge of Probate in 1853-4-5 
and 6; was Clerk of the Senate in 1855-6; Secretary 
of State in 1857; State Senator in 1861-2; and Repre- 
sentative in 1864-9. He was speaker of the House of 
Representatives in 1869. Mr. Piatt has always ranked 
high in the legal profession. His success as a lawyer 
has been dependent on an unshaken conviction of his 
probity, untiring diligence and devotion to the interests 
of his clients, and his comprehensive knowledge of the 
law, and his admirable judgment The impulse he has 
communicated while living, to all schemes of public 
enterprise and improvement, will doubtless continue ; 
but his aid and influence would be missed in many 
channels which no other could successfully fill. Mr. 
Piatt married May 15, 1850, Miss Annie Bull of To- 
wanda, Penn., and has had two children, Daniel G. who 
died young, and James P. who is now in Yale College.

CHARLES PARKER 

Son oi' Stephen and Rebecca Parker, was born in Che- 
shire, Conn., January 2, 1809. When nine years of age he 
was placed with a farmer by the name of Porter C 
where he remained until he was fourteen. He contin- 
ued on a farm until he was eighteen, when he went to- 
work in Southington casting buttons for Anson Mat- 
thews. He remained there 1 year and then rem< 
to Naugatuck, then a part <>f Waterbury, where he 
worked for Horace and Harry Smith about six months. 
In August, 182S, Mr. Parker came to Meriden and hired 
out to Patrick Lewis, making coffee-mills. In December, 
[829, he went into business foi himself with a capital of

seventy dollars, taking a contract from Lewis and Holt, 
for thirteen months to manufacture coffee-mills. His 
shop stood nearly opposite his present residence. Du- 
ring the thirteen months Mr. Parker cleared thirteen 
hundred dollars. He then took in as partner, Mr. Jared 
Lewis, and took another contract from Lewis and Holt, 
to manufacture coffee-mills, ladles and skimmers. In 
January, 1831, he sold out to Mr. Jared Lewis and 
bought an acre of ground lying west of his present 
residence. On this ground was an old brown house, and 
Mr. Parker paid for the house and ground, six hundred 
and fifty dollars. On the back of this lot he built a shop 
which was finished in the spring of 1832, in which he 
manufactured coffee-mills and waffle irons. Mr. Parker 
then went to market with his own goods. In Nov. 
1833 Lewis and Holt failed, thus leaving the whole 
market in Mr. Parker's hands. In 1833 he associated 
with his brother Edmund and Heman White, under 
the firm name of Parker and White, and carried on 
business until 1835, when Edmund Parker was sent to 
Montgomery, Alabama, with clocks and dry goods. In 
1836 he returned, and Mr. White went to Montgomery 
with dry goods, which sold readily. In October, 1837, he 
made a second trip to Alabama with a large stock of 
dry goods ; but the hard times came on and he lost 
heavily, much embarassing the firm of Parker and White, 
who did not fully recover from their embarassment for 
over six years. They were often advised by their friends 
to fail, but did not, and paid all debts in full with interest. 
During this time Edmund Parker sold out his interest to 
Mr. White, and in 1843 the partnership was dissolved, 
Mr. White going south, where he soon failed. He came 
back to Meriden and hired out to Mr. Parker for one

one million dollars a year. 

His success in life has been owing to strict ecomony 
and close application to business; lie often working 
fifteen hours a day, attending to his large correspondence 
evenings. He has been distinguished for good sense, 
great industry, method in business, and punctuality in 
all his engagements. At the age of thirty-one, Mr. 
Parker experienced religion, and after two years united 
with the Methodist church. 1 le gave the Methodists 
the lot on Broad street on which their church was 
built, and also gave three-quarters of what the build- 
ing cost ; and he with his brother John jointly contributed 
between thii md forty thousand dollars towards the 
erection of the present Methodist church. His liberality 
has been great but unostentatious ; and whenever he has 

erred a favor he has endeavored to conceal it from 
the world. Mr. Parker has always refused to accept

incorporated a city ; when he lected Mayor, which

EDMUND PARKER 

The youngest son of Stephen and Rebecca Parker, was 
born in Cheshire, Conn., Feb. 9, 181 1. He removed 
to Meriden at an early age, and shortly after became 
connected with his brother Charles and Mr. Hem an 
White, in the manufacture of hardware, under the name 
of Parker and White, which firm were really the 
pioneers of the business enterprise of Meriden. To 
their energy, perseverance and success, is due in a 
great measure the growth and present prosperity of 
the town. Upon the dissolution of Parker and White 
he associated himself with his brother John in the brass 
and iron-foundry business, and in the manufacture of 
coffee-mills and other hardware, under the firm name of 
J. & E. Parker, which partnership continued until his 
health failed in 1865, when he sold out his interest to 
his brother Charles. He was Selectman and also 
County Commissoner for several years. He embraced 
Christianity at an early age, and for many years was a 
member of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Meriden. 
He joined the Episcopal Church in 1858, in which 
communion he remained until his death, which occurred 
April 19, 1866, at the age of fifty-five years. Mr. 
Parker was distinguished for the clearness and strength 
of his judgment, the ease and accuracy with which he 
transacted business, and the kindness and affability 
which he uniformly manifested in all the relations of 
life ; and while always attentive to business, he was

actively engaged in the battles of Roanoke Island and 
Newbern. Constant exposure for weeks brought on 
an attack of typhoid fever, and he came home in the 
spring of 1862. Immediately after his recovery he pre- 
sented the cause of the Chaplain's aid Commission in 
this State ;. and it was while engaged in this work, that 
he was invited to become the Pastor of the Center 
Congregational Church in Meriden, Conn., where he 
was installed October 22, 1862 ; having been previously 
oi'dained by Bishop Simpson in the Methodist Church. 
Mr. Woolley was brought up in the Congregational 
Church under the pastorate of Dr. N. Hewitt, but was 
converted in the Methodist Church, which will account 
for his connection with that church, for which he still 
cherishes the warmest affection. Mr. Woolley has been 
twice married. His first wife was the daughter of 
Charles Briscoe of Bridgeport, Conn., with whom he 
lived five years ; during four years of which she was an 
invalid, being confined to her room the greater part of 
the time. She died May 6th, i860, leaving no children. 
In Dec. 1 86 1 he married the daughter of Dea. Stephen 
G. and Mary A. Ferris of South Nor walk, Conn., by 
whom he has two children, a son and daughter. 

In his present pastorate, Mr. W. succeeded the Rev. 
O. H. White of New Haven. The church membership 
at that time was 154; it is now 224. His church is the 
original church of Meriden, having been organized in 
October, 1729.

ALMER HALL 

Son of David and Thankful Hall, was born in Walling- 
ford, Sept. 10, 1793. His early boyhood was spent with 
his parents on the farm. His opportunities for intellec- 
tual improvement were limited. After leaving the farm, 
he commenced for himself by peddling tin ware. and 
" Yankee notions" over the Alleghany monntains, through 
Virginia, Tennessee and other States, for Charles Yale 
of Wallingford. After following this business a few 
years, he opened a small store in Wallingford for the 
sale of dry goods and groceries. He continued in that 
business several years. In 1827 he commenced the 
manufacture of britarmia spoons, but did not succeed 
well in the business. In 1834 he went into company 
with Waiter Martin for the purpose of manufacturing 
wooden screws. They soon failed, and Mr. Hall lost 
$9,000, all that he was worth. He became very de- 
spondent, and had no ambition to commence business 
again ; but visiting New York, a friend gave him seven 
pounds of German silver and told him to begin life 
again. In 1837 Mr. Hall formed a copartnership with 
William Elton under the firm name of Hall, Elton & 
Co., for the purpose of manufacturing German silver 
ware. They were the first successful manufacturers of 
this ware in this country. He continued in this business 
until his death, Jan. 15, [865, at the age of seventy-two 
years. He was the last one of the constituent members 
of the Baptist Church, which was organized in May, 
18 17. Four weeks afterwards he was chosen deacon, 
and ever after used the office well, " purchasing to him- 
self a good degree." He had a more than ordinary gift 
for prayer and exhortation, and used it well to the last. 
He was thoroughly versed in the great doctrines of 



grace. It was his delight to hear them preached, and 
converse about them in private. Mr. Hall was a q 

unassuming man, and was possessed of that charity 
which " thinketh no evil." He wa ined to put I 

best itructiou on the acts of others, and to impute 

to them the best motive's possible. He was confv 
and unsuspecting, so much so as to suffer loss from 
some with whom he transacted business. For many 
rs he was the chief support of the church, when it 
could not have been sustained without him. Mr. Hall 
married, 1st, Miss Lois Twiss of Meriden ; 2nd, Miss 
Fanny Silliman Ives of Meriden ; 3rd, March, 1X40, 
Mrs. Clarissa Cooke of Wallingford. He had seven 
children, two of whom are living, viz. : Aimer I. 
Jane A., wife of Mr. D. W. Fields of Wallingford.

Son of Theophilus and Azubah (De Wolf) Yale, was 
born in Wallingford in 1747. He married Lucr

and was one of the first in Connecticut who commenced 
the manufacture of scythes and bayonets Bi i 
successful in business, from a small beginning he 
timulated a I 1 .-state. He was in the service 

of his country during the Revolution, and was an aciive

CATHOLIC CHURCH. 

The first Roman Catholic service in Meriden was held 
at a private residence in the north-east part of the town. 
The building now occupied as a residence near the cor- 
ner of Liberty and Broad streets, and which then stood 
on the corner of Olive and South Broad streets, was soon 
after purchased and used by the Catholics for many 
years. Rev. Thomas Quinn was the first settled pastor, 
although Rev. Messrs. Stevens and Hugh Riley had 
previously had pastoral care of the society. During 
Rev. Mr. Quinn's pastorate, the present church of St. 
Rose of Lima was built at a cost of about $25,000. 
Soon after the completion of the Church, Father Quinn 
was removed to another field of labor, and was succeeded

INTRODUCTION. 

Few know the amount of time, patience and labor, that 
is required in compiling genealogies, and no one can 
estimate the difficulty of collecting these materials, who 
has not had experience in similar undertakings. It has 
been said, that it was useless to tell antiquaries anything 
about the cost of such works, for they understood it ; 
and it was equally useless to tell others, for they could 
not comprehend you. It is probable that this work 
would not have been printed for several had not 

the services of Mr. Elihu Yale been called into requi- 
sition. He has spent many years in examining town 
church and family records, and in an exten 
pondehce with the descendants of the families noti 
in this work. Every one who has had am experience 
in labors of this kind, knows that errors arc unavoidable. 
The neglect of parents in having the births, deaths, and 
marriages in their respective families recorded, i

records a correct list of a family. I have carefully com- 
pared these records with those of the neighboring towns, 
the published genealogies of some of the families, and 
also the records of the Probate office, and the office of 
the Register of deeds for the county. Thus in some 
instances I have supplied the record of whole families, 
not found upon the town records at all. It was my in- 
tention to bring the record of each family down to the 
present generation, but the work has grown to such a 
size that it will be impossible except in a few instances. 
Of the Parker, Street, and Brown families I have the 
record of several thousand names of collateral branches, 
and also the records of numerous Meriden families, since 
the incorporation of the town. These Meriden pedi- 
grees I had hoped to have incorporated in this work, but 
perhaps sufficient inducement may be offered to print 
them separately ; they would occupy about two hundred 
pages. Any corrections or additions to the families 
mentioned in these genealogies will be thankfully re- 
ceived by the author. v

BEACH.' 

Genealogists have been somewhat divided and in doubt 
regarding the earliest families of this name. Hinman assigns 
John of Stratford, to Thomas of Milford ; but John of Strat- 
ford had two children born to him before John the son of the 
Milford Thomas was born. Savage thinks John of Stratford 
was probably son of Richard of New Haven, if not his brother. 
Savage also thinks Benjamin of Stratford was son of Richard 
of New Haven. But if so, he would have been only fifteen 
years old when first announced in Stratford, which is out of 
the question. The probabilities seem to indicate that John, 
Benjamin and Richard, who all appear in Stratford, and 
Thomas of Milford, were brothers. The latter had a 
home lot in Milford in 1648. The Beaches of Litchfield, 
and George Beach Esq. of Hartford, are said to be of this 
stock. Richard Beach of New Haven I take to be the man 
who was in Stratford in 1663, and as keeper of the ordinary 
or tavern, desired a grant of land from the town, and 
also exemption from military duty. He bought of Thomas 
Wheeler, who bought from Robert Rice, the lot where 
Mr. Meacham now lives. Wheeler moved to Pagusset 
( Derby), and sold to R. Beach, who sold to Mr. Fenn of 
Milford, and he sold in 1667 to Rev. Israel Chauncey, the 
second pastor of the Congregational church in Stratford, 
part of this land, with part of the land owned by John 
Brinsmade, one of the first settlers ( on the river side), and

John Beach's house lot extended from Main-st, to Back-st, 
originally called Front street, and covered the present lots 
now occupied by the Masonic Lodge, Alfred Barnet and Mrs. 
Hubbell, with a part of Mrs. Linsley's and Miss Poor's 
grounds. 

I will now attempt to trace, so far as I can by existing re- 
cords, the settlement and increase of the above named ten 
children of John Beach of Stratford : 

I. ELIZABETH. 

Elizabeth m Eliasaph Preston. He was born with his 
twin brother Hackaliah, April 9, 1643 : was a son °f William 
Preston, one of the first settlers of New Haven. Their 
mother was probably William Preston's 2d wife, and a daughter 
of Robert Seabrook, another of whose daughters was the 
wife of Thos. Fairchild, and an original proprietor in Strat- 
ford. Eliasaph Preston removed to Wallingford soon after its 
settlement in 1674, and was the first Deacon of the Congre- 
gational church in that place. He died in 1705, as. 62 years. 
Elizabeth was his second wife. His first wife Mary Kimberly 
died in 1674, April 28. She was the widow of Thos. Kimberly, 
and died in 1672. 

The children of Eliasaph and Elizabeth Preston were: n 
Elizabeth, b Jan. 29, 1676 ; 12 Hannah, b July 12, 1678; 13 
Eliasaph, b Jan. 26, 1679-80 ; 14 Joseph, b March 10, 1681-2 ;

BLAKESLEE.* 



The name of Blakeslee, on the early records, is written in 
twenty-five or more different ways. It is now generally 
spelled as above. 

There is a tradition among the descendants that two broth- 
ers of the name of Blakeslee came from the west of. England, 
designing to settle in the Plymouth Colony, and that one of 
them died on the passage. The other came to Plymouth, 
where he died in the early days of the Colony, leaving one 
son, who was placed with a blacksmith in New Haven, Conn., 
to learn the trade. It is also asserted that the brothers 
brought an anvil with them, and that it was seen but a few 
years since in Roxbury, Conn. 

SAMUEL. 

Samuel and Elizabeth Blakeslee appear to be the first 
of the name in Wallingford ; they were in the place about the 
year 1 7 1 2 ; of their history very little now appears.

John Brockett came to Wallingford with John Moss from 
New Haven, in 1667 or 1668, and was chosen by the people 
of New Haven as one of the committee to manage the affairs 
of the settlement. He was frequently called to fill many of 
the public offices of the village, and after its incorporation, to 
represent the town in the General Court. His house lot was 
No. 1, at the extreme south end of the village, extending from 
the Old Colony road east toward Wharton's Brook, twenty 
rods wide and forty rods long ; subsequently it was extended 
to the Brook. The land on which now stands the house of 
the heirs of the late Edward Hall, is a part of this grant. 
He died March 12, 1689, as. 80 years.

in 1762, which, until within a few years, occupied the lot on 
the corner opposite the Isaac Peck house, on which a school- 
house is about being erected, the lot having been given to the 
town for jthat purpose by the late Moses Yale Beach Esq. 
Mr. Brockett died July 29, 1773, ae. 74 years. His wife died

The disease of which Mr. Titus Brockett died was small- 
pox. He was a member of Parson Andrews' Episcopal 
church, and a strong Tory. Parties had been formed for 
and against the British -Government. In Wallingford they 
ran extremely high, and just two years before, Rev. Mr An- 
drews delivered his celebrated Fast-day sermon, that compelled 
him to leave for Nova Scotia. At the funeral of Mr. Brockett 
the Whigs would not have him buried with other members 
of the family, but compelled Turhand Kirtland and two 
others, to have the grave dug on a wet, springy place, directly

CARRINGTON.* 

This family is one of great antiquity. Sir Michael Carring- 
ton, who was a standard bearer to Richard I., 1189, is the first 
of whom I find any record. His grandson Sir William Car- 
rington was an officer under Edward I., 1272-1307. Sir 
Ecknund Carrington, Kt, was an officer under Edward II., 
1307-27. Sir William Carrington, Kt, temp, of Edward 
III. 1327-77. Sir Thomas Carrington, Kt, Steward (of the 
household) to Edward III., was the father of John Carrington, 
who in the beginning of the reign of Henry IV. for his ad- 
herence to Richard II. (who was deposed ) was compelled to 
flee from his country, and on returning assumed for disguise the 
name of Smith. He died 1446, and was father of Hugh ( Car- 
rington ) Smith, who appears to have been the father of ( 1445- 
1500) Sir John Carrington Smith, Baron of the Exchequer, 
temp. Henry VIII., whose fourth son ( 1509-47) Francis (Car- 
rington ) Smith, of Ashley Tolville, Leicester, was great grand- 
father of Charles ( Carrington ) Smith, who was created Oct. 
31, 1643, Lord C , Baron of "Wotton Warren " in War- 
wickshire, 4th of Nov,, following Viscount Carrington in the 
Peerage of Ireland, was murdered by his valet at Pontoise in 
France, Feb. 21, 1664, and was succeeded by Francis Car- 
rington Smith, 2d Baron and Viscount. He died in 1705. 
Charles, his son, died young, in May, 1706. The title and 
honor thus became extinct. 

John Carrington was an early settler in Farmington, and

672 HISTORY OF WALLINGFOKD. 

Henry Cook was at Plymouth, Mass., before 1640. He had 
sons, Isaac, John, Henry and Samuel. Isaac is supposed to 
have remained at Plymouth, and John to have settled at 
Middletown. Henry and Samuel settled at Wallingford, and 
are the ancestors of most of the name of Cook in Connec- 
ticut, and of many in various parts of the country. 

SAMUEL. 

Samuel Cook came to New Haven in 1663, m Hope, 
daughter of Edward Parker of New Haven, May 2, 1667. 
They went to Wallingford in April, 1670, with the first plant- 
ers. He was, perhaps, the first and only shoemaker and 
tanner of leather in the place. After the decease of his wife 
Hope, he married Mary Roberts, July 14, 1690. He was 
regarded as a very good man by his friends and neighbors, 
and was frequently called to fill offices of responsibility and 
trust in the village, and in the church of which he was a 
member. He died March, 1702. He left an estate of ^340.

HENRY. 

Henry Cook, a brother of Samuel, came into Wallingford 
about 1674, and I suppose he married his wife Mary there, 
but at what date does not appear. Of his history little can 
be learned, except that he was a farmer, and was frequently 
elected to offices of trust and responsibility by his townsmen. 
That he was a brother of the first Samuel there is no doubt, 
as it is clearly shown by the records of Wallingford. He 
died in 1705, as. 51 years. His widow Mary died Oct. 31, 
1718.

religion he was a zealous friend of the church of England. 
He generously paid one-quarter of the cost of building the 
old church which was erected in the old Mix Lane, just oppo- 
site the residence of the late Isaac Peck. He also presented 
the church an organ ; this* same organ was a few years since 
sold to the Episcopal church in North Haven, and in 1869 
they sold it to Wm. P. Gardner, an organ builder in New Ha-

HALL. 



JOHN. 

John Hall senior, (the emigrant), appears first, at Boston, 
and afterwards at New Haven. He evidently was not an 
original settler at New Haven, as his name does not appear 
in any list which I have been able to discover until after 1650. 
From whence he came is uncertain. The name (Hall) is a 
difficult one to trace, on account of the great number of 
original settlers of that name, 28 having come to America 
previous to 1660, of whom seven bore the name of John.

HULL' 



This name was early in Connecticut, and came from Derby- 
shire, England. George Hull was at Windsor, Conn., in 
1636, and was a surveyor at Wethersfield the same year, and 
a member of the General Court 1637-8-9. He married 
Elizabeth Loomis in 1-641. 

Richard and Andrew Hull were both at New Haven in 
1639, and had families. 

JOHN. 

Dr. John Hulls, as he wrote his name, was at Stratford in 
1 66 1, when he was admitted a planter. It is not quite certain 
whether he came from England, or was a son of Richard 
Hull of New Haven. Dr. John was at Derby in 1668, and 
at Wallingford in 1687. He died Dec. 6, 1711, at the latter 
place. He was probably somewhat advanced in life when he 
came to Wallingford. He married Mary Jones, Oct. 19, 
1672, probably his second wife ; she dying, he married

JOHNSON.* 

Fitz James came from Normandy with William the Con- 
queror about the nth century, and settled in the north of 
England. It was customary before the Conquest to change a 
name by adding son, as we find Grimkelson, Gamelson, &c,

among the conqi* ' times adopted in- 

l. Thus, Fitz Harding becami Hardingson; Fitz CI 
Clarkson; Fitz James, yamesm; and Fitz John, John*. 
The Fitz James mentio banged his name to J 

md had a numerous family. One branch of it \ 
Scotland, where the name became quite numerous. Some ' 
of these added a / to the name, and thereby made it 1 
Johnston. 2 In the reign of Queen Elizabeth one branch 

to Ireland, and became quite numerous. Sir Will 
Johnston »f this branch of the family. In later : 

family v • tied in Kingston-on-Hull. At the time of 1 »r. 
Johnson's visit, as agent from Connecticut, to England, he 
found the family almost extinct, there being but one, a maiden 
lady of thirty years, left in the place. On visiting the church- 
yard, he found a large number of tomb-stones andmonuments 
with the name of Johnson inscribed upon them. Thj 
brothers had gone from K .1 to North America, one of 

whom, a clerg settled near Uoston, and was killed by 

the Indians. He left a considerable family, from whom h 
descended most of the name in Massachusetts and Rhode

numerous. Robert, the 3d brother, settled in New Haven, 
Conn., and was one of its first founders. 

Children: 1 John; 2 Robert; 3 Thomas ; 4 William, and 
possibly others. 

Edward Johnson originated from Kent, in England, in a 
parish within which county, called in his will Heron Hill, i. e. 
Heme Hill, or Heme, and at a place in that parish called 
Waterham. He probably came to this country in the fleet 
with Winthrop, in 1630. He died April 23, 1672. He left 
five sons : Edward, George, William, Matthew and John, and 
two daughters, Susan and Martha. They have many descen- 
dants in Massachusetts. 

4. WILLIAM. 

William Johnson, son of Robert, the emigrant, appeared 
early in New Haven. He was one of the original sub- 
scribers to the compact for the settlement of Wallingford, 
in 1670, and had assigned him a lot, bounded as follows : 
"20 rods wide north and south, 19 rods and 4 ft. east and 
west, and bounded east by y e street, and north by Jeremiah 
How, and west by Nathan Andrews." This piece of land 

he sold, with consent of his wife Sarah -, to Isaac Curtis, 

in 1694. Mr. Johnson does not appear to have ever had a 
residence in Wallingford, but was simply a subscriber for the 
benefit of his heirs who might settle in the place. 

JACOB. 

Jacob Johnson, son of William, married Abigail Hitch- 
cock, Dec. 14, 1693. He built his house on the north side 
of the road that leads past the residence of the late Col. 
Thaddeus Cook, and nearly opposite the barn built within 
the last few years by Chauncc ;y M. Cook. He was a tailor 
by trade: he dit.. : July • 19, ae. 80 yrs. Mrs. Abigail

846 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

Martin, and the date of its roll is 1066. The name was not 
only numerous on the other side of the water, but has been 
the same in this country from its first settlement. There was 
a William Martin at London, England, who assisted the Puri- 
tans in preparing for their voyage to Plymouth Rock ; but it 
does not appear that he came with them. John Martyn, after- 
wards Capt. John Martyn or Martin of Plymouth, and son of 

Martin of Bridgetown, near Totness, who had male issue 

living at that place in 1620, sailed round the globe with Sir 
Francis Drake, leaving Plymouth Nov. 15, 1577, and returning 
to the same port Sept. 26, 1580. 

Christopher Martin with his wife and son Christopher, and 
one whose name is not given, came over in the Mayflower in 
1620; but they all died during the first winter. Others of the 
name however, came in almost every ship that brought over a 
company, for some years. They settled in various parts of 
Massachusetts, Connecticut, Virginia and other colonies. 
Anthony died at Middletown, Conn., 1693 ; William of Strat- 
ford at Woodbury, Conn. It is proposed in this to trace only 
the Wallingford families. As early as 1684, John and 
Elizabeth Martin made their appearance in Wallingford, and 
were married by Mr. Moss, Jan. 15, 1684 ; how long they 
continued in the place does not now appear. In 1735, Rob- 
ert Martin and his wife Abigail appear to have been in Wall- 
ingford.

Wooster Martin came into Wallingford early in the 
present century, and settled on the North Farms as a wagon- 
maker, and by industry and perseverance accumulated a 
very handsome estate. He was twice married ; 1st, to Althea

MERRIMAN.

Merriman, both names referring to the same person. Joseph 
Merriam took the freeman's oath in Lexington, Mass., March 
14, 1638. He died Jan. i, : 1641, and some of his descen- 
dants assumed the name of, or were recorded as Merriman. 

NATHANIEL. 

Cap't. Nathaniel Merriman was one of the original set- 
tlers in Wallingford in 1670. Lots Nos. 1 and 2 were set him 
on the north, west and east corners of the south cross street, 
also No. 2 adjoining the west lot. These corner lots are now 
owned by Peter Whittelsey, Esq.,. and Rev. Edgar J. Doolittle. 
These extra lots were set to him in consideration of some out 
land which the committee had given out to other parties to 
his damage. Capt. Merriman built his house on the lot 
where Mr. Whittelsey's house no 1 s, but a short distance 

to the west of it. A large elm tree stands nearly in front 
of the old site. He died Feb. 13, 1693. ae. 80 years. *

village, a short distance below the present residence of 
Constant Webb, and adjoining his friends, John Brockett and 
Samuel Brown, to whom was assigned the lot on which the 
Beach house now stands. Failing to settle on it within the 
time limited, his title was forfeited, and the committee to 
whom such matters were referred, gave it to John Moss Jr., 
and the same remained in the possession of his heirs and 
descendants, until the death of the late Ebenezer Morse. 

John Moss sen. died in 1707, at the advanced age of 103

WHITTELSEY.' 

JOHN. 

John Whittelsey is believed to be the first person of the 
name who emigrated to the United States, and the ancestor 
of all the Whittelseys who have lived here. He came from 
England about 1650, and became a tanner and shoemaker at 
Saybrook, Conn. The town of Saybrook, by authority of the 
General Court, gave to Mr. Whittelsey and Wra. Dudley the 
right to establish a ferry over the Connecticut river, near 
which he lived, in 1663. This still belongs to his descendants. 
He died April 15, 1704; his wife died Sept. 29, 1714. Their 
descendants were : 

( a ) John, settled in Saybrook ; ( b ) Stephen, attorney at 
Saybrook ; ( c ) Joseph, settled at Saybrook ; ( d ) Eliphalet, 
settled at Wethersfield, married Mary Pratt, Dec. 1, 1702 ; ( e ) 
Ebenezer, settled at Saybrook; (f) Jabez, settled at Bethlem, 
deacon; (g) Samuel, settled at Wallingford, minister: (h) 
Elizabeth ; ( i ) Ruth. 

SAMUEL. 

Rev. Samuel Whittelsey was the youngest son and child 
of John and Ruth Dudley Whittelsey of Saybrook, and was 
born there in 1686, was graduated at Yale* college in 1705,

930 HISTORY OF WALLINGFORD. 

1738, ordained March 1, 1758, over the 1st church in New 
Haven; preached election sermon, May 14, 1778. Presi- 
dent Stiles says of him, "He was an excellent classical 
ilar, well acquainted with the three learned languages, 
1, Greek and Hebrew, also with Geography, Mathemat- 
ics, Natural Philosophy and Astronomy, with Moral Philoso- 
phy and History, and with the general Cyclopaedia of an 
academic life ; and amassed by laborious reading, a great 
■ ure of wisdom. In Literature, he was in his da\, oracu- 
lar at College, for he taught with facility and success in even- 
branch of knowledge." One of his most distinguished pupils 
said of him at his funeral, "I shall never forget the pathetic 
and earnest recommendations of early piety which he gave to 
us m the course of his tutorship." 

It was this man of whom David Brainard said, " He had 
no more grace than this chair." Peabody, in his life of 
Brainard ( p. 2-74 ) said in reference to this language, that 
it was "a phrase which that individual justified by his sub- 
sequent, proceedings." Dr. Bacon in his historical discourses 
(pp. 248, 249) refutes this charge, and shows the spirit 
which dictated the utterance of such language. He was 
licensed to preach, Sept. 30, 1740. "In 1745 he resigned 
his ofhce in college, and for reasons which do not appear, 
relinquished the design of entering the ministry, and settled

Middlesex, but has been settled in Ireland for about two 
centuries. They have been, and some branches are still 
members of the Society of Friends. On the old records the 
name is spelled both Wilcox and Wilcocks. It is derived 
from William. 1 

William Wilcox, who was chosen Lieut. Governor in the 
early times of the Massachusetts Colony, was the first of the 
name who is recorded on the list of the early officers. He 
was an officer of the artillery company, and died at Cam- 
bridge, November, 1653. He is there stated to have come to 
this country from the county of Suffolk. Nine of his descend- 
ants graduated at the New England colleges up to the year 
1823. 

JOHN. 

John Wilcox of Hartford was an original proprietor in 
1639. He had a son John who accompanied him from 
England. This son John was born in England, and married 
1st, Sarah, eldest daughter of Wm. Wadsworth, Sept. 17, 
1646 ; 2d, Catherine, daughter of Thomas Stoughton, Jan. 18, 

1650; 3d Mary , who died 1671 ; 4th, Esther, daughter

" Meriden, Dec. 31, 1847. 

" The Church met after preparatory lecture. A communi- 
cation was read from the Congregational society connected 
with this Church, stating that the new house of worship was 
nearly completed, and- inviting the Church to occupy it 
for the service of the sabbath, whereupon resolved : 

'" That the invitation from the society to remove our place 
of worship be accepted, and our Pastor requested to appoint 
all meetings on the Sabbath in the new Church immediately 
after it shall have been completed. 

"Resolved further, that so many of the members of the 
Church as choose to remain in the old house of worship, be 
affectionately recognized as a Church of Christ whenever 
duly organized, and that our Pastor be authorized to ter- 
minate their connection with this Church on their intimating 
to him their wishes to that effect, and that they thus reserve 
one-half of the Church property. 

" Resolved further, that the brethren thus leaving us for 
the purpose of forming another Church, be allowed to take 
a copy of the Church records. Meeting adjourned.

ERRATA. 




In the year 1561 a book was printed called the " Anatomy of the Mass." 

It had only one hundred and seventy-two pages in it, but the author was 

obliged to add sixteen pages to correct the blunders. Type setting in early 

times was not remarkable for accuracy or exactness, and the same may be 

at the present day in regard to local histories. The proof-sheets of 

work were carefully read three times before the work went to press, 

t a multitude of errors have been discovered since the book was printed. 

he following are the more important ones :
